As Godels Incompleteness Theorems prove, it is not always possible to compute or prove a given fact from the facts you have already shown or know, and so it may be that computers never will fully understand us no matter how advanced their AI's get. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6del%27s_incompleteness_theorems
