The US is pouring billions of dollars into instant computer translation. While this may be alarming for all of us here, I seriously doubt they can suceed (one of my degrees is computer science, so I have some understanding of the challenge). Unless they can create an computer that can REALLY think, there's just no way.

What is everyones' thoughts on this?

I agree with you.

Well, A.I. techniques are getting better but the idea of a machine thinking like human is creepy.

Imagine an Intel based boss running MS windows OS !
