"Building an artificial intelligence is like building a
cathedral. The first cathedrals took generations, so most working on them would never see the final outcome. Those working on it took pride in their craft, building bricks and chiseling stones that would be placed into the Great Edifice. So, as AI researchers, we should think of ourselves as humble brick makers, whose job it is to study how to build components (e.g. parsers, planners,
learning algorithms) that someday someone, somewhere, will integrate into intelligent systems"
