This is still not directly definable, although we still know of human abilities that even the the best present programs on the fastest computers have not been able to emulate, such as playing master-level go and learning science from the Internet. Basic researchers in AI should measure their work as to the extent to which it advances this goal. AI research should not be dominated by near-term applications. DARPA should recall the extent to which its applied goals were benefitted by basic research. NSF should not let itself be seduced by impatience.
