Brent I agree, it seems to be an ever moving goal post. Already so much is 
being done by expert systems that up until a few years ago was the exclusive 
domain of humans -- for example automated arbitrage trading systems that are 
responsible for an ever growing slice of all the trades on the major stock and 
commodities exchanges in the world because not only are they so much faster 
than humans, but often are making better trades on average than human traders.
 
Part of the reason for this goal post moving that seems to be going on is due 
to how hard it is to really provide any kind of rigorous definition of what is 
the meaning of intelligence, self awareness etc.and so it is quite easy -- in 
the fog of semantic confusion -- to post facto claim that whatever had been 
previously proposed as a clear sign of AI is not really indicative of true AI.

That's because as soon as a computer does what was formerly claimed to be 
possible only for human intellect, e.g. beat a world chess champion, prove a 
new theorem in mathematics, drive a car in traffic,... that thing is 
immediately demoted to "not real intelligence".

So AI is always what hasn't been done yet.
