Cover Quote: September 1996

…[T]he hardest thing for computers is the “simple” stuff. Sure they can play great chess, a game of mechanical rules and finite options. But making small talk—or, indeed, playing Trivial Pursuit—is another matter. So too with recognizing a face or recognizing a joke.



- Robert Wright
Can Machines Think?, 1996
