I agree with you, Ryan! I haven't tried to access their API, but I'm aware of their breakthroughs. Still, I think we won't be close to AGI until neuroscience unveils some of the remaining mysteries hiding in our brains.
One could argue that AGI won't need to simulate the brain, but just emulate it. That may be possible, but I think we aren't even close to that.
Which people are you referring to? I'd like to read other points of view! Cheers :)
