"Today's AI is about new ways of connecting people
to computers, people to knowledge, people to the physical
world, and people to people."
~ Patrick Winston, MIT AI Lab briefing, 1997
"Our ultimate objective is to make programs that learn
from their experience as effectively as humans do. We shall...say
that a program has common sense if it automatically deduces
for itself a sufficient wide class of immediate consequences
of anything it is told and what it already knows."
~ John McCarthy, "Programs with Common Sense", 1958
