Why can't we teach computers to understand sentences and respond intelligently?

With the power of computers these days, why isn't some basic form of AI available?

Humans have been dabbling with Artificial Intelligence since the earliest days of the most primitive of computers, but it wasn't until the mid 1960s that the Dept. of Defense began funding AI research. That is when the most basic "intelligent machines" began to blossom.

Of course the mid-sixties also produced these "famous last words" ...

"Machines will be capable, within twenty years, of doing any work a man can do" - HA SImon, 1965

"Within a generation ... the problem of creating 'artificial intelligence' will substantially be solved." M. Minsky,1967

As it turns out, A.I. is a little more involved than first expected. Software and resource requirements rise exponentially with the degree of complexity of the AI application. Please don't expect the premature expectations of the 1960s to be fulfilled any time soon. ;-)


Sounds good. But why can't we do it? What prevents us from doing this?


Don't worry.. These things will be available soon...


Yeah. That's what they said over 40 years ago!


Can you provide a reference to concur a basis of your theory?


This can be done.
Visit this web site, and you can have an intelligent conversation with a computer.
Vista has voice recognition software built in, and it can do things like open applications, copy files, etc. There are other AI applications that you can also run.


This is undeniably a computer. It doesn't pass for a human -at all-.
