If you followed the world of pop-culture or tech for some time now, then you know that advances in artificial intelligence are heating up.

These movies present an example of something called “Artificial General Intelligence.” So how close are we to that?
No, not how close are we to when the terminators take over, but how close are we to having an AI capable of navigating nearly any problem it’s presented with.
