True, but the advances will be in algorithms. The problem with AI is that it couldn't do things that impressed us because it coukd no see, read, talk, sense, walk, mive and itherwise get a good enough representation of the world. Google was birn with an algorithm. Recurrent NN in architectures that are recurrent are gradually learning and reusing other networks, combined with the ability to process informatiin abiut the world in usefull representations are advancing fast. If you look at evolutionary methods, it seems to be the case that at some point, we'll create some rules that just converge to intelligence. We are waiting for it to happen. Until then, we'll have Robo-Copies that can do anything better than us, but that get stuck all the time and don't generalize well.
