A fascinating (and very long, but worth it) post by Steve Steinberg, on artificial intelligence.

If we were trying to build a true, general AI, we would first need to create a way for it to get around and interact with the larger world. And we would need a system for rapid knowledge acquisition, so that we wouldn’t have to manually explain every detail of how the world works.

Which, of course, is precisely what we’re building.
