TL;DR Summary
Is quantum computing the key to achieving the world's first true artificial general intelligence?
Is advanced quantum computing the key to achieving the world's first true artificial general intelligence? The astronomical amount of computing power required for an AGI is currently not possible with classical computing.

No.
The issue with AGI is not that it is an intractable problems; it is that we don't know how to do it even in principle.
Quantum computers will hopefully be able to provide a significant speedup when it comes to e.g. training; but unless one assumes that an AGI will "emerge" if one makes the system large enough they won't fundamentally change what ML can and cannot do with respect to an AGI.
