Has AI reached human-level performance?

In recent years, there have been quite a few claims that state-of-the-art AI has reached human levels of performance in object recognition.

Even before my recent experiences with a so-called 'smart car', I believed that 'Singularity' (when artificial intelligence equals human intelligence) would be a long time coming: Google has twice advised me to park on a dual carriage way and walk to my destination. I call this Artificial Stupidity (AS) and my daughter calls it Artificial Idiocy (AI).

In a recent talk, Prof Andy Wills of Plymouth University discussed some of the evidence against that view, including some preliminary unpublished work from his lab. A video of this talk has been put on YouTube. Interestingly, my retweet on AI was retweeted by an AI tweeter bot. I am wondering how long this retweeting would go on for if I were to retweet the bot's retweet - ∞ ?
