Phil, do you see a possible collaboration between Google and Cyc or MIT's
Open Mind Commonsense?

Google has two large, long-term projects underway:

1. Establishment of the world's most massive computing centers - this is
odd, given that Google already has the best response time and most reliable
websites in the world, and the amount of centralized computing power they
are building does not seem necessary for indexing the web using anything
like present means. Although I don't really know.

2. Scanning in and converting to computer-searchable files as many books as
they can.

When an AI is developed, Google will have the most computer power to run it
on, and the largest collection of data to feed it with.
