In yesterday's AI Minute, I typed "Will artificial intelligence..." into Google to see what people were wondering what it will do. Before that I did, "Is artificial intelligence..." to see what it is. I'd like to do one final one of these, which is typing, "Can artificial intelligence..." to see what people believe it can do. Not will it, but is it even possible. Here is the list:

Can artificial intelligence learn?
Can it feel emotions?
Can it think?
Can it become self aware?

These are all very good questions. And they're questions, coincidentally, that we don't have any good consensus answers to. We don't even have majority answers to. These are still open questions. And to me, that speaks of an exciting time, with an exciting technology. It's a world full of possibilities.
