Comment: AI has certainly come a very long way since I devoted a few years to the discipline, while working at AT&T’s Bell Labs in the mid1980s.

Another nail in the coffin of those wonk’s who insist upon programming their own AIs; doing so is really like listening to vinyl records, so not necessary.
