I am going to publish an article in a few weeks in *Divenire* where I defend
the somewhat unusual contention that we are going first to emulate specific
individuals, and that any other kind of AGIs will be developed only later as
efforts to put together  patchworks of actual (or hypothetical) human

The arguments behind such assumption, albeit not very technical in nature,
appear sound enough to me.

First, you have native speakers of a given language, then you generalise and
establish grammatical rules obeyed by an ideal speaker thereof.
