Today, artificial intelligence exceeds mankind in many human, cognitive tasks:
Can we build ai without loosing control over it?
Will artificial intelligence take your job?:
Humans need not apply:
The wonderful and terrifying implications of computers that can learn:
B.II - MANKIND WILL PROBABLY CREATE MACHINES, WITH HUMAN-LEVEL BRAIN POWER
Now, the creation of general artificial intelligence is so far, the local optimum bound path, and mankind's largely pertinent task.
The human brain computes roughly 10^16 to 10^18 synaptic operations per second.
Mankind has already created brain based models that achieve 10^14 of the above total (IBM etc).
If mankind isn't erased (via some catastrophe), on the horizon of Moore's Law, mankind will probably create machines, with human-level brain power (and relevantly, human-like efficiency), by at least 2020.
B.III.A - SCIENTIFIC-REDEFINITION OF GOD
In summary, the ability to generate non trivial intelligence (perhaps artificial), that surpasses the net intellect of one’s species, and or compute simulation of universes (from crude universes i.e. illustris, to instance(s) with intellect resembling prior), is that which classifies said species as God-bound.
In simpler terms : God is any non-omniscient entity with the ability to compute simulation(s) of universes (from crude universes i.e. illustris, to perhaps instance(s) that may contain sophisticated intelligence) and or to engineer non-trivial intelligence (perhaps artificial), that shall exceed that of the intellect of its creators..
