It's not processing speed, it's storage space and time.  AI progs,
regardless of processor speed, have to LEARN how to work.  Also, what if
the job needs manual labour?  Give the main computer control over a robot?
What if the computer decides it no longer wants to be enslaved to mankind
and starts wreaking havoc?  TTYL!
