Machines with wisdom?

Prof : You can't be an experimentalist! Do you really think you can think of an algorithm which works in all the cases. x-(

The fact is everytime I see myself trying to solve a problem in AI (Vision to be specific!) and trying to make the machine think, I somehow get a feeling that I've adopted the machine and now I'm morally obliged to take care of it and do everything in order to make it think. Do you know what that means? You have to slip into the boots of the machine. Think in the same way as it does - sequentially, one thing after the other. And this is where problems begin. I can't seem to think straight. Crazy it may sound but more frustrating is the fact that each and every guy seems to be thinking straight!

People sometimes ask you of the thing you are most afraid of. This is what I'm afraid of... that a day might come when you would have lost your confidence over yourself. Let alone think of the solution to a simple problem, you can't even think systematically. :(

Today If I would have got a chance, I would love to go back in time and do things differently, undo the damage of some of the decisions I've taken this far. But then it's life rite! It's an adventure!!
