@Sebastian A - too true. How would MS (particularly) and Google recognise intelligence even if they somehow managed to create it when they haven;t much themselves?
I have ethical reservations regarding the field of AI (I'm not unthinkingly anti, mind, just have reservations), but if there's one thing that'd make me immediately distrustful of an AI it'd be knowing that it was created by MS or Google. Which'd be rather unfair on the AI itself, but heck - see why I have ethical reservations?
That said - I do want an Aineko!
