01:23 am - Computer Language Acquisition [Notes on the Acceleration]
So now there's a computer that's effectively learning language on its own, like using evolutionary algorithms for industrial design, this process looks quite impressive simply because it can improve with minimal human intervention, which allows for the sort of exponential growth that can become impressive quite rapidly – at least once computer hardware is sufficient for the task. Once again, I think 2015 is going to be fairly impressive in terms of electronics, and 2020+ is likely to be difficult to predict. Natural language queries into Google already work much of the time, I'm betting that in five years, search engines will be using this sort of language understanding tech.
