AI in the comix?

I think we've just been cussed out in the universal language of mathematics

most science fiction
punts the hard questions of AI
by assuming that robots achieve
in one fell swoop
without intermediate stages

but the premise of 'robot wisdom'
is that the intermediate steps
must progress from mathematics
thru literature
to psychology

along which path
we'll achieve
universal human/scientific wisdom

not least the ability
to cuss in math
