John, you've given that thought (what would be sufficient)
a great deal of time to settle, and your books have been
related to the same issue. You're in a better position
than anyone else I know to opine about what is required.
In previous emails, you've mentioned that it will take a
lot of human work, and a lot of calendar time, to get
into the state where we finally do have AI that is about as
capable as a child. If that is so, then the financial leverage
of offshore human capabilities, along with a great suite of
productivity enhancing tools for those same people,
should be an enabler for reducing the number of person
years and calendar years for delivering the necessary
Do you have any specific wish-list items for an approach
that would be more likely to result in child-level AI?
