Re: But where is the commonsense reasoning at?

The oranges you're asking about can't be found in this particular collection of apples.

"Commonsense reasoning" is just a matter of incorporating a sufficiently rich world model in an ML system. The rub, of course, is that "incorporating" is a complex problem, "sufficiently rich" is often an infeasible one, and "just a matter of" approaches "the impossibility of" as the problem domain grows.

But generally speaking, most ML problems fall into one of two classes: one where we have some ideas about how to build that world model in theory but don't have the resources to do it in practice; and another where it's not appropriate for the kinds of problems we're interested in solving. And the problems Fujitsu are talking about here fall into the latter class.
