This is ultra hype... AI today is both very powerful and very stupid, people who do not understand this create this extreme hype... it's not even correct to call it stupid because in the low level functionality of AI today "clever" doesn't exist (that's built into the upper layers that don't exist in artificial NN).
The latest AI is powerful because we can directly manipulate the design of a relatively tiny network that do relatively basic things, making them do what we want can be attributed to the cleverness of the computer scientists creating them to do specific tasks, not the resulting network it self... This is where the hype begins, there is a galactic sized space between this infinitesimal functionality and the network of networks of networks of networks of networks that make up something remotely conscious and "smart" in the inventive, creative and insightful sense that we think of humans being smart.
The best analogy I can give is to say that AI today are individual bytecode instructions, the building blocks... consciousness is the operating system that grew on top over a billion years of iterations.
Disclaimer i'm not a computer scientists studying AI, but I've read enough to separate the hype from the substance.
