Ah except for this bit: "Giving robots the ability to read and understand our stories..."

Georgia Tech didn't get the memo from Amit Singhal, former SVP of Search, that "Meaning is something that has eluded Computer Science. Natural language processing—or understanding what was said—is one of the key nuts we will have to crack."

#IBM just showed us that #Watson is learning new tricks. #AI  
Artificial intelligence is sort of the holy grail of computing, and while we may never reproduce the human brain or it's capabilities in their entirety in electronic form, the world's brightest minds are now capable of creating rather convincing systems that are beginning to learn more sophisticated concepts and even learn on their own.
