Is the future close?

September 20, 2013

Is “the future” closer than I previously thought? Ran into both of these today.

Haven’t read them, and don’t know what to think yet.  But they vaguely sound like progress towards strong AI and towards brain emulation, respectively.

EDIT:  My conclusion after reading more about both – future is not necessarily that close
