Bingecast: The Successes and Limitations of A.I.

With Eric Holloway

What is an algorithm and could a computer ever perform a non-algorithmic task? Computers are getting faster, algorithms are getting more complex, and our computing power is growing. With all these advancements, are there limitations that computers can never overcome?
