Vint Cerf on the Future of the Internet

Vint Cerf on the Future of the Internet

  • I happen to be a computational linguist, among other things, and I disagree with Cerf’s assessment of the present and near-future success of automatic translation — you can’t translate correctly if you can’t think. Computers can’t think, and we won’t know how to make them think for quite some time.
  • His assessment of the impact of mobile computing is spot-on, though, and it’s a point that’s often not on the radar in western industrialized countries with hot and cold running PC’s.
