Sorry this is one of my many pet peeves. Everything hinges on what you mean by "learn" and "act". Tell me this, what new thing has a computer learned that no human knew before? And how did the computer act on that new knowledge? I think AI is an illusion, produced by the old trick of bait and switch. We talk in the abstract of "learning and acting" as though it was like what humans do, and then when it gets to the actual point of proving it we are told, "well, we don't mean THAT exactly."
