Searle's Chinese room. A computer couldn't have a quality conversation in Chinese by following rules. Any computer that could have such a conversation would map the symbols to a grounded representation of the world and would respond based on inferences derived from that representation, and it would be intelligent.

Man, life is already stressful enough.
 
It’s fun for the occasional tech demo, but now we know the real reason that Google Glass, and other augmented reality solutions, have failed to catch on. The future they’ve promised us will eventually turn into the same nightmare that surfing the web has become—a sea of intrusive ads and countless another annoyances trying to sell you something. You can at least close your browser or look away from your laptop when it all gets too overwhelming, but as Keiichi Matsuda reveals in this brilliant Hyper-Reality short film, one day there might not be any escape from ads.

If you were to show this video to space aliens, we wouldn't look so bad. A little nuts, but worth getting to know.
A massive compilation containing 506 viral videos from 2015.

While watching this I am constantly reminded we are human beings and it never ceases to shock me how clever we are in what we can do and how far we can push ourselves...... Its great being a human

Funny how kids learn concepts in school in roughly the same order that humanity acquired them. They first learn animals, then numbers and letters, and then words. They move up through math and science, until late in grad school, when students are learning things that humanity only learned last month.

A lot of "word attack skills" taught in grade school reading classes stem from a basic knowledge of Greek and Latin prefixes, suffixes, and root word origins. So there's that. The US junior high curriculum was always pretty heavy on Greek mythology, The Odyssey etc. So there's that.

The reason for the right side graph, it has more to do with your understanding of how complicated the area is. You start to master one thing and feel good about it only to have yet another set of areas open up to be learned. 

Had a coworker who thought pretty highly of himself until I pointed out some challenges to him. Not necessarily ones I would be able to complete, but that existed. Then he started to understand where he fit into the mix.
