    Hi sepala,

    The future - heralding the advent of the Technological Singularity.

    See: Singularity Hub.

    For an example thrust toward the Singularity in terms of Artificial Intelligence, be sure to tune into the nightly Jeopardy TV show in mid-February (14-16th) when an IBM computer named Watson will take on past record holders of the game for a best of 3-game contest over three shows (I think).

    Hi sepala,

    Not specifically! Quantum computing will be able to crack just about any password, but AI has not been fully realized. There are current AI projects that are attempting to model the human brain, but that goal is a long way from being achieved as we know so little about how the brain works. Although we know a lot, we haven't conquered it!

    Since partial results of test Jeopardy sessions have been published - we can probably expect the human players will get their patooties wiped by Watson in the to be aired shows in mid-February. Let's wait and see what happens.

    Remember, Garry Kasparov lost one chess game to the IBM computer, Deep Blue, in 1996, but went on to recover and win the match with 3 wins, 2 draws and the sinle loss in game 1 of the match.
