Artificial Intelligence

Back in the good old days people thought that we'd be able to teach computers to think. They'd start out pretty stupid but they would soon get smarter and smarter until eventually we'd be lucky if they kept us as pets.

Reasonably smart people poured thousands of dollars into the project and the best thing they got out of it was a Rogerian psychiatrist. Which they soon needed after everything collapsed from underneath them.

Since then the plans have scaled back quite a bit and most of the very bright people who used to be doing AI have moved on to other things.
