But unlike a person, a computer is still putting a car on a track...
If we assume we can copy "intelligence" then fine, we can do anything. But it is an assumption. At this point, we can do algorithms, and we can do math (busy beavers ;) ).
So so far, all evidence points to us being able to make a more perfect algorithm, an more perfect train track taking us to a destination. But how do we make a train that can choose any detonation it wants?
