Straight from the pages of TMIAHM comes news that an effort to help Watson, the IBM supercomputer, pass the Turing test, has, um, failed. Researchers fed him the Urban Dictionary, but had to back it out when he began answering questions with scatology.

Time to rename Watson to Mike.

Which brings to mind one of my favorite political cartoons of all time, by Ron Cobb back when he was a semi-underground cartoonist instead of a Hollywood art director, ca. 1970.

It showed a huge battle robot looking down at a few tiny generals and scientists. Behind it was a test battlefield with destroyed tanks, buildings and general mayhem. The caption was "What do you want to see next... stupid?"
