AI, as we know it in games for example, are nothing more than more or less sophisticated algorythms. It's all hand-written code. Well - Cycorp has spent the last 30 years developing another kind of AI. All pretty hush hush. The company has now come forward with an AI that's not entirely man-made anymore. It has been taught, raised like a child, and has for the lack of a better term, *developed itself*.
It's apparently intelligent enough to teach 6th graders math, because it's supposedly capable of empathy, and is as much aware of the implications of something, as it is of the plainly presented facts thereof. So yeah, queue Cyberdyne and Terminator jokes now. I say it's both fascinating and very scary. Humanity is but the egg out of which the Machine Man, nay dare I say it, Machine God will emerge.
