I was under the impression that this is about as likely as someone being
able to "hack together" a 747 in their back yard. Building Real AI is
probably not simple (we'd probably have stumbled on it by now if it
was). I doubt anyone will be hacking together a Real AI on their own
anytime soon. Anyone have estimates of the complexity of a seed AI?
