Why is artificial intelligence seen as something impossible?Watch this thread
Basically why cant we use 'Watson' machine and develop it through improving its hardware and software and adding 3D sensors such as Kinect? It can then find information appropriate to the current situation and environment?
It just a thought.
Therefore, why cant we use the present super computers or even make better computers that is able to acquire information from the internet in an immense speed and then use the information to apply certain thoughts and actions while learning it at the same time.
Also, computers aren't very good at understanding meaning from text. It's not something they are naturally able to do, it requires complex statistical approaches. Look at Now or Siri, if you ask it something they ask in the adverts then it'll give you a clever response, but for 99% of things the best it can do is "let me google that for you". The same would be true of a computer reading a webpage.
On other hands, computers cannot compute everything - there are mathematical limits of computability. These can be changed in the future.
