Our galaxy will be colonized by robots not humans | David Kipping and Lex Fridman

It might be impossible or too difficult to send biological beings to other stars.  But we could send intelligent machines.

There is an assumption that is often taken as a given that it won't be too hard to develop intelligent machines.  Eventually, we will get there, but there are huge technical hurdles to overcome, along with the end of Moore's law.  We are approaching the limit of how small we can make circuits with silicon.  Different computer technologies are being developed, but they are a ways off.
