What Did Watson the Computer Do?

Cool article in the NY Times about artificial “intelligence”. More like, “lots of data and quick access, with some speech recognition built-in”.

Yes, yes, computers are powerful and Moore’s Law etc., but I personally don’t think we’ll ever achieve true artificial intelligence with machines — and if we ever did, it would certainly not occur in our lifetimes.

Unrelated, but also interesting: pheromones and fidelity.
