Core Problem

(As opposed to "The Hard Problem")

Sharon Gaudin at computerworld.com
on artificial intelligence (AI) today—

"Google's [Geoffrey] Hinton said he's most excited
about gains in neural networks that would enable
computers to understand the content of sentences
and documents.

'That is close to the core of Google because
it involves understanding sentences, and if you can
understand what a document is saying, you can do
a much better search,' Hinton said. 'That's a core
AI problem. Can you read a document and know
what it's saying?'" 

Sometimes. How about you?

The Messier Brand

Virginia Heffernan on the film version of A Wrinkle in Time:

"… the film is also sad, and soaring. It recalls the hippie days when a perverse, hubristic originality was a quality to be cultivated, not medicated. Told not from an aloof remove– through the eyes of a wise Yoda or Peter Jackson– the movie glitters irregularly, woven through with the sparkling fibers of a righteous child's tormented imagination. Steven Spielberg also attempted, with the same ambiguous but moving results, this messier brand of science fiction in 'A.I.'"
