I was just going to say this reminds me a lot of the hype about Wolfram Alpha before it was released. It was meant to understand plain English and the examples they used in the demo were just mindblowing - truly another level of artificial sentience. Then it actually came out and it turned out that they'd cherrypicked and tuned for some very specific examples, and you pretty much had to use it like you would any other search engine.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
