Harvard is trying to build an AI as fast as the human brain

Harvard University has been awarded $28 million (£19m) to investigate why brains are so much better at learning and retaining information than artificial intelligence. The award, from the Intelligence Advanced Projects Activity (IARPA), could help make AI systems faster, smarter and more like human brains.

I will not be amazed if they invent some thing close to it because there are some of the best young brains studying in Harvard.

We can decide that when we see the end result if that is a smart move or a stupid one.
