The WordPress.com stats monkeys prepared an annual report for this blog.
Top blog posts in 2015 were: “A.I.: from Sci-Fi to Science reality” and the ever popular older “Speech Recognition for Dummies” and the classic “Voice-activated lift won’t do Scottish! (Burnistoun S1E1 – ELEVEN!“.
Scottish Elevator – Voice Recognition – ELEVEN!
(YouTube – Burnistoun – Series 1 , Episode 1 [ Part 1/3 ])
“Voice recognition technology? … In a lift? … In Scotland? … You ever TRIED voice recognition technology? It don’t do Scottish accents!“
So, we had 4,500 unique visitors in 2015! Thank you!

- More than 63% of customer service enquiries are initiated through social channels (So, watch your social media streams!)

Just found this very brief and illustrated History of Artificial Intelligence at LiveScience.com and I couldn’t help but share it!
We have come a long way! (e.g. getting a Chatbot to pass the Turing Test and having to come up with a new test now!) But we also still have a long way to go until the dreaded Singularity moment comes!
