I've been watching Numenta ( https://numenta.com/ ) and and I think their
search for the pattern of how real neurons cooperate (an algorithm!) in the
brain, giving rise to our own intelligence, is the most likely to get us to
artificial general intelligence.
They observe that the physical structure of the neocortex is largely the
same across the whole of it, but different regions of the neocortex perform
different functions in cognition (vision, hearing, planning, etc.) implying
that if we understand the structure we can understand and reproduce the
functions of cognition.
I found that to be a compelling argument and I look forward to seeing where
they take it.
