Human-Level AI Is Right Around the Corner—or Hundreds of Years Away -

Scientific director, Swiss AI Lab IDSIA When will we have computers as capable as the brain? Soon. Every five years computing is getting roughly 10 times cheaper. Unlike Moore’s Law, which says that the number of transistors per microchip doubles every 18 months (and which recently broke) this older trend has held since Konrad Zuse built the first working program-controlled computer. His machine could perform roughly one floating-point operation per second. Today, 75 years later, hardware is roughly a million billion times faster per unit price. Soon we’ll have cheap devices with the raw computational power of a human brain; a few decades later, of all 10 billion human brains together, which collectively probably cannot execute more than 1030 meaningful elementary operations per second. How will brainlike computers change the world? Most current AI research is about using ...
