"Two weeks" Sep 30, 2016

Government-sponsored machine translation projects are the new Money Pit, and MT companies keep saying that the technology will be ripe in "two weeks." Money keeps pouring in, so why discourage the taxpayer with the fact that MT will never (well, not in 50 years) be ripe enough for serious purposes?
