Why do you think so, sir?

What about the fact that only lately hardware became close to the order of
magnitudes of the brain?
Let me give some numbers: home super-duper CPU has 8 cores with say 3GHz
each. We got total of 24GHz.
Now a $300 GPU contains ~10,000 CPUs each with 1GHz. Total 10,000 GHz =
Our brain has 10^9 neurons working with max 100Hz. Total 10^11Hz.

Yes, I didn't take into account the vast amount of synapses, but you see
where I'm going to..

I must mention that the AI science, from the mathematical aspects, enjoys
tons of new insights over the last years. There is some criticism about
this community, as can be heard on Yann Le'Cunn's lecture on youtube, with
something like being in a circles between defiance and denial, and being
afraid of non-convex-shmonvex problems (he killed me on that one). I humbly
agree with him.
