Is Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) even possible?
Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is possible and probable.
Pascal's AI Wager
The development of AI is further ahead than most of the public realizes and has been developed well enough to generate arguments, deliver those arguments in a structured debate and do so in a very human manner (i.e. with jokes and pleasantries).

Human beings can be thought of as machines. Human thought is entirely a function of the human brain, where is therefore something that we can understand and duplicate like any machine.
The fundamental thesis of singularity is a proven fact and we need just a little bit more time to find the truth.
If we will have success in simulating a real brain (Also not human i.e. chicken) an AGI will be created. Then is only a matter of improvement and time
Given the dramatic progress we have made in the field of AI, it stands to reason the general purpose human competitive machines are coming soon.
There is general agreement among scientists that AGI is not only possible, but likely to occur before the end of this century.
Humans don't understand consciousness. They don't really understand intelligence. It is ludicrous to give names to their creations and believe that it is equivalent to things they don't understand.
Humans not understanding consciousness, they have nothing to develop it in AI, therefore the emergence of consciousness in AI can only be the product of random chance, which you can't count on. Therefore it is unreasonable to place your bets in the existence of AGI.
There is no reason to believe in a bleak future with AGI. Our intelligence has been developed in the evolution's competitive kill or be killed environment. Death is final and we have self-preservation mechanisms. AI and computers have none of those.
It is possible to make a program look like AI but it will actual always behave in the path of the creator . This means that it can be unpredictable but still not inteligent like a humam being. It can seem to have feelings without having though
Human beings are more than meets the eye. There are dimensions to human consciousness that are not physical in the way we understand physics today. The entire idea of AGI begs the question which Turing first side-stepped when he asked: Can machines think? We must first answer: What is thought?
Just because a computer can calculate faster doesn't mean it knows what it must calculate. Only human beings have the human experience. Human thought cannot be replicated without human experience.
There is no general agreement beyond alarmists and trans-human proponents that AGI is even possible.
The pursuit of AGI is pure folly. Especially given the unmitigated risks that AGI may harbor, beyond which we cannot see, an unbridled pursuit of the Singularity is a total waste of resources and an exercise in human hubris.
