So how is your research coming on developing these AI tools?

well might as well turn yourself in and set in prison while your personal AI lives your life for you too

somethings are worth money because of the human factor, not the efficiency factor

I agree. I won’t bore anyone with the endless wiki articles on it but this AI stuff is very complex. The human brain is not something you can just program into a computer to self-learn. We humans can barely comprehend a human brain, let alone clone it to some technological vehicle.

Basically trying to program a computer to do learn and carry out tasks as fast as a human can do, is impossible at this point. A computer is one thing, we’re talking about interpretating language and carrying out autonomous actions. How do you program a computer to think for itself or learn?

Uber’s self driving car ran over and killed someone, that tells you we have a very long way to go.

If the AIs are doing all the work, then what are you good for?

Serious question....
