Pete,
Excellent point. As a matter of fact I would say that Boston Dynamics has that situation now as an example. They are emulating animal nature and are getting creepily good at it. So yes, I agree, when AI can intellectually stumble around a bit, it will give us a greater sense of something alive.

  In order to jump through the hoops to genuinely convince folks they're dealing with "general intelligence" it is likely going to be necessary for the "AI" to emulate the jumbled up bag of cognitive errors and biases that make people human. When the "AI" attributes much more significance to loss of something than gaining that same thing, for instance, then we might go "Whoa! That thing is creeping me out it's so real!"

 What we (Society) call Machine Learning, I call weighted big data with Artificial Stupidity. Yes the machine is learning, NO it is not intelligent. Quite the opposite. In fact, it reminds me of the old Sesame Street game, One of these does not belong with the other. Smart comparisons based on big data inputs with massive processing. The current Machine Learning will be useful as a tool, similar to a ratchet wrench is to a car. It will help us for specific tasks, but not all tasks. Ever try to use a ratchet wrench as a hammer, right, well it does work, but can give very bad results. That is experience talking :)
