Computers and...Truth

As I remember from my introduction to computer science course in college, the definition of computing goes something like this: "Using a machine to do what a human can do but do it more efficiently and quickly."

So there are alway interesting things happening in computing.

One interesting story about technology involves Eric Scmidt, head of the company Alphabet, and formerly of Google.

Apparently, Alphabet and Google have recently become significantly more aware that one big obstacle to computing in the future is that computers can't understand what truth is.

So computers can do what humans do. Only, somehow, computers can not compute what the truth is more efficiently than us humans? :)

Here's a link to the article about Mr. Schmidt:  https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/21/alphabets-eric-schmidt-why-google-can-have-trouble-ranking-truth.html.
