    "current state of it is pathetic"
    AI beats humans at chess and jeopardy. It solves difficult puzzles much quicker than you or I could. Maybe it's "pathetic" compared to what you would like it to be, but it's far from pathetic.

    "there is no significant research going on"
    Please do the tiniest bit of research before posting garbage like this. Again though, you include another relative term like "significant" to cover yourself.

    Lame post.
