This "defence" for automation gets thrown around a lot, and I never understand why so many people buy it. Actually that's a lie, I am fully aware how stupid most people are, I guess I just prefer to live in denial and hope it gets better.
Disclaimer: I am not trying to suggest you are one of those stupid people.
It really doesn't need to be "human level" (I do know what you mean) only seem to be; we are close to
that now. Turing did not say it had to be as smart as a human to past his test, only that the tester
not be able to tell it was not human.
Remember Star Trek when Kirk would destroy a machine with logical paradoxes? Yeah, we are well
past that already - try it with Alexa or Google Assistant.
I have an ex-girlfriend who was clearly AI embodied in flesh, no native intelligence but she could
respond to simple stimuli in a convincing way.
I have a theory about the phone system(s) and self awareness - more fit for another survey.
The biggest problem with AI is people-in-force labeling something as artificial "intelligence", using it as a club to crush your scull, because our culture has developed submissiveness under any sort of "intelligence" as a valuable trait for any human on earth.
