It sounds like they are aiming this entirely at Narrow-AI
applications, and although they occasionally mention "human level"

As far as certain "narrow" applications go, variants of neural-nets
are certainly fairly effective. Furthermore, I believe that their

useful hypotheses".

As far as actually using this for AGI... um... er...
