The computer has made something that is very old evident in a new way." - W. J. T. Mitchell

"Composing computer programs to solve scientific problems is like writing poetry. You must choose every word with care and link it with the other words in perfect syntax.

"For a generation that gets most of its information off a computer screen (be it Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter or what have you), an athlete has to be very careful about the public/private aspect of that. Be careful not to be overly critical, be careful with use of language, and understand the whole world is watching." - Leigh Steinberg

"A reason to have computers understand natural language is that it's an extremely effective way of communicating.

If you can fully grasp its abstractedness, especially in the computer age, it becomes quite clear that no group can monopolize this abstraction, except through a series of swindle. If the usurers had been bolder, they might have monopolized language as well as currency, and people would be saying we can't write more books because we don't have enough words, the way they now say we can't build starships, because we don't have enough money." - Robert Anton Wilson

"Of the properties of mathematics, as a language, the most peculiar one is that by playing formal games with an input mathematical text, one can get an output text which seemingly carries new knowledge.

One can say that the input contains an implicit knowledge which is thereby made explicit." - Yuri Ivanovich Manin

It is as simple as that - but that isn't simple." - Louis B. Lundborg

If it doesn't understand something, it will ask you..." - Owsley Stanley

"It's now up to the states to figure out how they implement that definition of a well-rounded education, in other words, where they spend federal funds.

Arts advocates are ready to help states and school districts with their plans." - Elizabeth Blair Lee

"People have been trying to do kind of natural language processing with computers for decades and there has only been sort of slow progress in that in general.
