If all you want is a system that can play chess or go, that's clearly
doable. But these are more simulated intelligence than artificial
intelligence. Produce a system that can be taught any game the way a human
learns it, and can learn to play it well via playing and studying the game,
and *that* will be AI. It doesn't have to be a terribly complex game, and
the level of play doesn't have to equal human masters: just the general
ability to learn a game and improve its play will be tremendously more
impressive than DeepMind.
