I think of the most exciting developments in the field in the last few years has been how good AI for natural language is getting. I think we are going to see an explosion in the next few years of systems that can really process, understand, and interact with general language. It will, I think, be the first way that people really feel powerful AI. Because you’ll be able to interact with the systems like you do by talking to somebody else. You’ll be able to have dialogue that actually makes sense. And computers will be able to process huge volumes of text that are sort of very unstructured. And you as interact with that system in whatever way you want and in whatever way you do, you will get what you want.
