We all understand that an A.I.s have to be programmed to respond to things, which can either take a really long time or it can take someone with mad programming skills to program the learning feature in it.

We've seen A.I.s talk and respond to basic situations, we've seen them compete and beat humans at

We all understand that an A.I.s have to be programmed to respond to things, which can either take a really long time or it can take someone with mad programming skills to program the learning feature in it.

We've seen A.I.s talk and respond to basic situations, we've seen them compete and beat humans at games they are experts at, we've even seen them assist us with computers and such.

With how advanced current day A.I.s are, and how fast they've been developing, how far would you say we are from a fully functioning smart/sentient A.I.?

Answers don't have to be exact
Some people have asked me to define sentience and here is a crude version for the sake of example in this question. Sentience will be the moral compass that humans have.

Example:
Player A has 9/10 health and Player B has only 4/10 health. The moral compass would convince player A to give player B the next health

Example:
Player A has 9/10 health and Player B has only 4/10 health. The moral compass would convince player A to give player B the next health pick up because they need it more. A machine with no moral compass would take the health pick-up without a second thought. The machine isn't sentient.

Best Answer:

Jullian: I'm going to repeat myself, but a true AI isn't programmed. A true AI is when a brain simulation generates a consciousness, and while they're working on that, it's probably going to take a few years or decades.

Other answer:

Jullian:
A.I is still programmed by humans, you're still giving it codes to process so it's not automatically generating its own based on other things like sounds, movement etc.. Even the IBM Watson has been programmed by humans to scour the internet for resources & put it all together to form an oppinion. That isn't TRUE A.I.

Are we even close to creating A.I? No, but we're making progress. I'd suspect another 20-30 years before we get anything more advanced then what we have.

VenuG:
During this process of development of AI, hardware may get integrated into living entities. So that will be a man-machine entity. Morality, ethics etc. are human traits and no machine is ever going to posess those traits. Not even pretend that they posess these qualities.
On the internet one can read about crashed UFOs and the pilots are half living entities and half machine. These may be anecdotal stories, who knows, but this idea of hardware fitted into a human being has its advantages. Already in a very small scale this is being implemented for people with disabilities. Presently this technology is in very rudimentary stage but there is scope for tremendous development. http://www.roswellufomuseum.com/incident… http://www.theweek.co.uk/us/59331/roswel…
EddieJ:
There are no true A.I.s.

However, it doesn't take a single individual with "mad programming skills" to develop an algorithm. Things progress over time.

Mostly, such systems learn by recognizing patterns. With access to vast amounts of data on the internet better matching can be developed.

But that isn't sentience. It can only pretend.

Edit:
You are completely wrong about the definition of sentience. But programming in a conscience in the deterministic manner in which you described is trivial.

In any case, you should completely give up caring about the details of this subject and adopt the attitude that whatever progress happens — you will just wait for it to happen.

Ike Nwabuoku:
20-30 years- mark my words
Gary B:
not even.

PROGREAMMIN is easy.

Handling all teh posibilties and condtions is almost im,possible.

we are DECADES, maybe even centirues, awsy for sentient AI

deanyourfriendinky:
True sentience in an AI cannot happen. Sentience requires a life-spark that simply cannot reside in a non-biological entity.

You used the term "smart/sentient", but the two words in that term are not related directly.

Aerialnine:
Not in our lifetime….nor the next several generations……programmed responses are barely in use right now…a self aware unit is far from that…….
chrisjbsc:
3 months.
David E:
No. All so called AI's out today are advanced expert systems.
