A picture of a robot doesn't do justice to the complex mechanism that is required for reading and 'understanding" text. There are many hundreds of interoperating systems - to the point where the complexity is beyond our conscious level and we must do it subconsciously.

We may talk about reading machines, but we are really in the Knowledge Management business. The machine is a quick way of getting knowledge into a form which can be easilyanalysed and disseminated.
