FULL ACK, Alphastar was after 1 week of training similar to a human who played 200 Years.
But still the AI (better call it machine learning) can only solve known problems at the moment. It's not possible to find something new, that's still something that only a human being can do. But still it will change our live in the next years. That's a really big impact for everyone.
Yes and no, AI can really good recognize patterns, but if something new accurs, it will always fail. So it's not possible to use AI for example in astrophysics, it can recognize the known phenomenon but not more. It can't show us something unknown. That's the actual limit of every machine learning algorithm. And I am not sure if we ever would be able to pass that.
Like I said, the limit is not the code. It's just a technical limit
Next step would be to teach an AI a few multiple things (different tasks). That would be the limit of neuronal networks with actual hardware.
An AI would be able to recognize new things, if it can learn everything else at once. That's not possible with actual neurological networks, it would need a quantum computer it's a n^n problem and it's not possible to solve that with actual architecture (faster or more CPU/GPU won't be enough, like with prime numbers for encryption)
