Another good Jaynes quote that comes to mind, although it's not as
complex as the one which started this thread:

"It is too much to expect that our robot will grasp all the subtle
nuances of common language, which a human spends perhaps twenty years
acquiring. In this respect, our robot will remain like a small child
- it interprets all statements literally and blurts out the truth
without thought of whom this may offend."
