"In the case of artificial intelligence, it seems a reasonable prediction that some time in this or the next century intelligence will escape from the constraints of biology."

"The development of an artificial brain is one of the greatest challenges in Artificial Intelligence. So far, researchers have typically studied brains such as those of rats, monkeys, and humans, but actually ‘simpler’ organisms such as social insects have surprisingly advanced cognitive abilities."

Quote by Dr James Marshall, Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield. Quote found in an article on The University of Sheffield website titled:"Green Brain’ project to create an autonomous flying robot with a honey bee brain"

"Not only will this pave the way for many future advances in autonomous flying robots, but we also believe the computer modelling techniques we will be using will be widely useful to other brain modelling and computational neuroscience projects"

"What is thinking? What is intelligence? What is the role that computers should and will play in our lives,
and what are the boundaries between humans and computers? IBM’s Watson demands that we reconsider
each of these questions"

"The digital technology revolution of the past fifty years has taken our information-based, intelligence-enhancing tools to a whole new level. As digital components continue to become ever more powerful, inexpensive and ubiquitous, our IT systems are growing in breadth and capabilities at a dramatic rate. Moreover, using these increasingly powerful IT tools, we are now able to address significantly more sophisticated and complex problems than ever - in science, engineering, business and society in general."

"So if computers are getting so much faster, so incredibly fast, there might conceivably come a moment when they are capable of something comparable to human intelligence. Artificial intelligence. All that horsepower could be put in the service of emulating whatever it is our brains are doing when they create consciousness — not just doing arithmetic very quickly or composing piano music but also driving cars, writing books, making ethical decisions, appreciating fancy paintings, making witty observations at cocktail parties."
