I was having a discussion the other day with my teacher about the future development of a real AI. In my opinion a real AI is one that can learn, grow, and act independent of everything. We decided that the key to it all was one simple question. How does something learn? Not, how do you learn? But, how does the actual learning take place? A truly mind boggling question for me. I speculated, but that's all. We think that learning is the key, everything can work off of that in one way or another. If anyone out there has any insight into this matter I would like to hear it.
