The other thing you can do with machines but not people is parallelize it. It can be interacting with, say, 100 people at a time to learn from them. The limits on how fast we can do things will not be the limits on how fast an AI can do things.
Let me reiterate that I donít think we will ever make true strong AI. I think itís just too complicated for us to figure out. But the obstacle isnít insufficient time.
