    If I have a bat in my hand will my computer be able out-smart me and run away and hide so I can't beat the micro-chips out of it?

    Or will it just sit there on my desk still immobile?

    the full capability of the human brain is unknown. And the idea that the human
    brain can come up with something that can out-brain the brain that came up
    with it is, in my opinion, a little off. (not you, the idea)

    The folks selling those ideas about computers are usually selling computers.. or
    their research is funded by folks that hope to own those computers.. don't
    believe the hype.

    and by 2056 it will all shut down

    because it will take the entire human species to generate such artificial intelligence

    and the sun doesn't even have that type of power

    sorry to burst ur bubble but time is up

    if u make this happen regret is inevitable

    The computer is only as smart as its programmer(s) and or the person(s) whose imputing the data into it.
