Quora – Is super-intelligence impossible?

Quora – Is super-intelligence impossible?

What do you mean by super intelligence?

Better than human level? Yes – certainly, and we are not there yet, and not as far away as many would like to think.

Intelligent enough to answer any question? No – not logically possible. The universe we live in has many different sorts of complexity and uncertainty in it that are not “knowable” even in theory. So it does not matter how “intelligent” any system is, it will still have to deal with multiple levels of uncertainty and risk. That just seems to be the nature of the reality within which we exist (however much we might want to hold onto the myth of “Truth”).
