Building artificial general intelligence

Artificial general intelligence is probably the holy grail of computer science.  Despite tangible progress in machine learning in recent years, many computer scientists believe that we are still far away from creating really intelligence machines. They say that, probably, even human-level artificial general intelligence is still decades away. The main problem is that we have to incorporate machine learning systems with reasoning and planning. So, what can we do about that?

The average life expectancy had doubled since the prehistoric period to the 19th century and doubled again over last hundred years. But the maximum duration of human life hasn’t changed so much. In fact, it’s known that many centenarian lived in the ancient world.
