That is probably a good prediction.

One of the interesting aspects of this is the progress being made by 
neurologists in deciphering the structure of the neocortex and how that 
is being applied to AI. Apple's Siri and other voice recognition systems 
are following the broad patterns of the brain. IBM's Watson also is of 
that model. Take a look at Kurzweil's "How to Create a Mind". There are 
some other similar books.

A key component of this is learning and then predicting the next inputs 
and the feedback that adjusts the prediction when in error. Something 
similar occurs with forward error correction for deep-space 
communications based on the Viterbi decoders.
