Lot of suspicious words used in the article.
"Artificial Intelligence works on a supervised learning system, where various sets of data are provided to the machines, to learn from examples."
It is not a learning system. Learning implies understanding, understanding implies intelligence. Intelligence implies consciousness. So called AI is not self aware. It is not a conscious living being. Hence it cannot really have intelligence and therefore it cannot learn. The problem is deeper than mere linguistic semantics.
Syntax (AI) vs semantics (human).
I asked ChatGPT to tell me the difference between Syntax and semantics
Syntax and semantics are two important concepts in linguistics and computer science.
Syntax refers to the rules that govern the structure of a language. It deals with the way words are arranged to form sentences and how those sentences are structured. Syntax is concerned with the grammatical correctness of a sentence, regardless of its meaning.
Semantics, on the other hand, is concerned with the meaning of words, phrases, and sentences. It deals with the interpretation of language and how words and sentences convey meaning. Semantics is concerned with the meaning of a sentence, regardless of its grammatical correctness.
In summary, syntax is concerned with the structure of language, while semantics is concerned with the meaning of language.

Although AI performs intelligent tasks, its reach is very narrow and limited as it can only provide an outcome that is already programmed.
Tasks can be performed with the use of intelligence, but tasks themselves as not intelligent. And as explained earlier AI is able to posses intelligence either.
The second part of the sustenance is true, but it is strange way to start the sentence with the statements that are not true.
"Artificial General Intelligence, on the contrary, is the intelligence of a machine that could perform all the intellectual tasks performed by human beings. "
That is absolutely impossible. It cannot be a human or a living being because it does not work the same way, hence it cannot ever perform with intelligence. Its a bogus notion, using either accidentally misleading or deliberately deceptive language.
Consciousness is not an algorithm. Hence a non conscious machine cannot perform the tasks a conscious being can. Anymore than humans can operate the way machines do.
"It possesses the ability to analyze a situation on its own and take a calculative decision,"
Again, it cannot do that. Its a lie. It cannot analyze it can compare with existing data. There is a crucial difference. To understand that difference see my sections on Syntax (AI) vs semantics (human).
"...like humans can, without having to be programmed in advance."
That is also a lie. The problem lies in not being able to judge only compare the output. There is similarities but also critical difference in making a judgement and comparing something to something else.
Here I'll prove it to you. I just asked ChatGPT 4
Explain difference between comparing something and making a judgment.
"Comparing something involves identifying similarities and differences between two or more things or concepts. When you compare, you are essentially examining the characteristics, features, or qualities of each item and highlighting how they are alike or different. This process is often used to gain a better understanding of the relative strengths, weaknesses, or other attributes of the things being compared.
On the other hand, making a judgment involves forming an opinion, drawing a conclusion, or assessing something based on certain criteria or standards. When making a judgment, you are essentially expressing an evaluation or decision about the value, quality, or significance of a particular thing or situation. This can involve weighing evidence, considering different perspectives, and applying a set of principles in order to reach a conclusion.
In essence, while comparison focuses on the ways in which things are similar or different, judgment involves taking a stance or making an assessment based on certain factors or considerations. Comparing is about examining relationships, while making a judgment is about forming an opinion or reaching a decision. Both processes involve critical thinking, but they serve different purposes and involve different levels of analysis and evaluation."
Now, do you think the text that was outputted was a judgement or a comparison? The answer should be obvious to a human. To a machine on the other hand....
Hence, it is also known as true intelligence or real intelligence.
lol No it is not. Its not even intelligence, But I guess in the world of marketing one has to pretend so redundant terms are used "biological woman" instead of simply a woman. "real truth" instead of just truth. "real facts" instead of simply facts.
Why is this so? Well, the answers is simple. When you missuses the meaning of words and you use them to describe things they are not meant to describe, eventually you inflate the usage of words to the point of making them meaningless. And than you have to use "true or real intelligence" because the word for intelligence itself, has been made meaningless by wrong and too frequent usage. Reminds me of Apple marketing.

When you do that. How do you market something for what it is. And what does even amazing look like, because when you make everything "amazing" you make nothing amazing since the word has lost its meaning. Its inflation 101.
"AGI expects machines to be as smart as humans,"
Better calculators yes. Smarter, no.
"Although, AGI doesn’t exist as of now, it is the primary goal of Artificial General Intelligence research across the world, and many researchers believe that it is possible to create AGI in the near future."
Yeah that is true. Because it is theology we area dealing here not reality. The technocrats and trans humanists and futurists all want this to be true so badly they have created, much like Apple a so called reality distortion field around the topic to sell you something that if you took at face value, would laugh them off the stage.
"Such intelligence seems highly unlikely to be accomplished anytime soon by a machine, let alone replace human beings."
While some market it as replacement, I would not bet on it. But that is another topic.

Can we ever build a digital computer that would be able to think or feel? Functionalists say yes, but according to John Searle and his famous Chinese Room argument, this would be impossible.

Professor John Searle considers the issue of whether a digital computer can think, presenting his famous Chinese Room thought experiment. This comes from John Searle's 1984 BBC Reith lectures on Minds, Brains & Science
But ideologues are not discouraged. So don't expect any reasonable arguments from that community. This is religion.
Former Google Engineer Pardoned By Trump Reboots 'AI Church'
Sunday, Nov 26, 2023 - 01:45 PM
Anthony Levandowski, a name synonymous with the pioneering of self-driving technology and a figure shrouded in Silicon Valley controversy, has made headlines again. This time, it's not about groundbreaking tech advancements or legal battles, but something far more unorthodox: the resurrection of his AI-centric church, "Way of the Future."
The church was originally launched in 2015, while Levandowski, while working on Google's self-driving project Waymo. It was an ambitious endeavor, aiming to merge technology and spirituality by fostering a "spiritual connection" with AI. Despite its closure a few years later, Levandowski's renewed venture, as discussed on Bloomberg's AI IRL podcast, has already attracted a "couple thousand people," Bloomberg reports.
"How does a person in rural America relate to this? What does this mean for their job?" he said. "Way of the Future is a mechanism for them to understand and participate and shape the public discourse as to how we think technology should be built to improve you."
The existence of the church became public knowledge in 2017 via Wired, years before ChatGPT brought AI into the mainstream conversation.
Levandowski’s idea raised eyebrows, both because of the church’s focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence developed through computer hardware and software,” and because of Levandowski himself. At the time, he was at the center of a high-profile legal battle related to the theft of trade secrets, sentenced to 18 months in prison, then pardoned by former President Donald Trump. -Bloomberg
According to Levandowski, more sophisticated AI systems could help guide humans with moral, ethical or existential questions.
"Here we're actually creating things that can see everything, be everywhere, know everything, and maybe help us and guide us in a way that normally you would call God," he said.
