So many similarities to artificial intelligence it is scary. Watch me rewrite the concluding paragraph.

Given the full suite of computational power at our disposal and with more and better algorithms than ever before, there are still zero AI’s at the present time. It may yet be possible for intelligent machines/computers to come in to existence, but the evidence for them is nil thus far. Until such extraordinary evidence arrives, there’s only one reasonable conclusion: our world, as best as we can tell, appears to be devoid of these wished-for artificial intelligences.
