Google and AI

The programming language of humans, if you will, would include the workings of your brain, said Google co-founder Larry Page, who offered his hypothesis Friday night during a plenary lecture here at the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science conference. His guess, he said, was that the brain's algorithms weren't all that complicated and could be approximated, eventually, with a lot of computational power. Specifically, Page said "When AI happens, it's going to be a lot of computation, not so much ... clever algorithms." Given the size of DNA (~600 MB compressed), the algorithms of the brain are "probably not that complicated."

"...artificial intelligence...I don't think it's that far off as people think."
