These equations are all imagined. In the end, the "intelligent" computer would just be doing exactly what it was programmed to do. As I said before, the appearance of random acts would be purely illusionary. A human can feel a mood swing coming on, and then make a choice as to whether or not to give in to it or else rise above it. Absent from all your equations is the notion that Souls make the final decisions. If you don't believe in Souls, well then you can easily theorize how AI might be possible. If you do, then you pretty much have to drop it. Unless you can find a way of giving a computer a self aware soul that is. I think the whole AI question really hinges on what you believe about our own natures.
