NEW YORK ( BankingMyWay) -- Back in the early days of computer research, it was a widely held belief of those pioneers at Bell Laboratories that it wouldn't be long before a computer was able to match (specifically resemble) the human brain.
All these decades later, that's not quite the direction in which computer science (and brute computer memory power) has gone. In fact, the more technology progresses, the more it exhibits fits and starts in trying to match that je ne sais quoi of human sensibility -- just ask the iPhone's Siri to understand what you are saying while walking down a crowded Manhattan sidewalk, compared with the hearing and comprehension of the person standing next to you.)
Now it's the automatic teller machine that wants to prove how human it really is, beginning with a few chatty ATMs in Pittsburgh.
