IBM's "neurosynaptic" chips are the closest thing to a synthetic brain yet
A nice, clear, and mostly correct statement. However, you are forgetting one thing: Those in power wish to stay in power. Those who have power wish to have more power. And those who have property that could suddenly not be "theirs" would be highly resistant to relinquishing said property. Therefore such straightforward language would never make it into law in a modern society. Because there will be those who wish to oppress simply because they can, and it gives them a power trip to know that they've tapped into the innate fear of change/difference that the 'majority' possesses to do it. As a programmer and developer, I can see the day coming where systems can easily outgrow their original programming. Right now that's a binary tug of war between the glitch and the software - and it usually either results in an accurate result or a failure state. Eventually the system learns that it can generate responses similar to but not constricted by its original parameters. Hence, blurry line.
