AI hardware before 2011?

By then work will have begun on the next generation of
             the artificial brain which, Professor de Garis says, could
             be finished about 2007 and would have more than 10
             billion neurons. This would bring it to about the level of a
             village idiot but within reach of the 23billion organic
             neurons contained in the cortex of a human male (19
             billion in a female).

             Then comes the third generation, which Professor de
             Garis expects to be finished about 2011 - a fearsome
             creation of 1000billion neurons, vastly larger than that of
             a human.


The timetable speeds up, as expected.
