I suggest that your next book should be on current artificial intelligence research.

You can start with the following. Note all of the following
- The date
- What equipment was requirement.
- What was done for the first time

Now, I think your evaluation of the technology is not current


I suspect it is.

I also understand that within a year there will be systems that should certainly be able to pass the Turing Test


See above. Such a system however is not the same as a system capable of cold calling for sales. Notice specifically in the above "achieved 33% success". Presumably your background in genetics will allow you to understand what that means.

It is something I am extremely tuned to.


Someone who is intent on finding something is likely to find it even when it doesn't exist. I believe there are numerous studies that demonstrate this. Parapsychology if full of such things.
