You're definitely right. A lot of people don't fully understand how difficult what he's trying to do here is - and there have been many, many teams trying to do what he's talking about and have failed. Not to say he won't succeed, just that if he does succeed it's a bigger deal than it sounds and would probably propel him into the league of the few programming giants. Here's hoping!

This is true, but I have also shot myself in the foot by perhaps making it seem like I'm taking on a bigger task than I actually am. Hopefully soon I can show more in detail what I have planned for AI, it is relatively simple overall. (In shorter words, I am building a very crude AI that just does a bit of deduction combined with score maximization, not something that can comprehend english sentences). :)

Sounds good. Sometimes a simple solution works much better than a complex one simply because it interacts with everything else really well and creates the impression that it's smart. Looking forward to seeing it. :)
