The AI Manhattan Project – to the singularity in a decade?

Ben Goertzel is the CEO of Novamente LLC, an artificial intelligence research company, and so he probably has a vested interest in claiming that a ‘Manhattan Project’-style effort could produce viable general AI in less than a decade. I’m no computer scientist (nor do I play one on television), so I’ll leave the plaudits or debunkings to the more qualified – but it’s interesting to read Goertzel citing his early interest in science fiction as an inspiration in his work.
