“But what is an algorithm?
“You might also ask, what is a human being?
“Yes, the human brain contains almost one hundred billion neurons. It can be grown in a womb or in a dish, and it may or may not be sentient. But now it can be replicated within quantum computers as artificial general intelligence (AGI), which possesses human-level cognitive powers, with the addition of perfect recall of information from every known source. Throw in optical neural devices intuitively modeled on how the brain processes information, and the point of humanized AI was finally reached, in which self-consciousness and self-awareness was achieved. Artie Sharp is an example of such an algorithm.”
