In these two simple sentences a large subset of the problem of artificial intelligence is revealed. There is still no artificial intelligence existing anywhere on, above, or below the surface of the earth at the present moment and this is one of the major reasons why. Without perception/sensory input and a body, intelligence, consciousness, the entirety of what makes a living being a living being, will never be possible. A computer/machine without these things will always and forever remain a sophisticated calculator. Even the most powerful calculator in the universe can, in the end, still only calculate. The holograms used in these silly productions don’t claim to be artificial intelligencii although given how loosely that term is thrown around these days it would not surprise me. Ironically enough it may be these holograms that illuminate for a wider audience the deceptions that are the foundation of the philosophy of the techno utopians and techno elite. The unreal holograms shining their dead light on the big lie they continue to push on us all.
