I am constantly amazed at the things that a well written software program can do. I think we're at the tip of a an amazing revolution, thanks to the confluence of cheap, disposable processors and clever software. I think of something like Google translate. I work for an international company that communicates with folks all over the world. There was a time, not so long ago, that it would be almost impossible to communicate directly with someone without a language to share, but translation software makes is a snap. I can see in English what was written in German, Spanish, Chinese, etc. Miraculous times.
Of course, one of the great things one can do with such a powerful technology is try to trick it. I think it's a good exercise, and at least for me, a very telling one. It let's us know that computers aren't so smart, they struggle with grammar just as much as we do.
To see where we are at, a fun game, that isn't really new, is to type something in English, translate it through several languages before eventually bringing it back to English again. I thought it would be fun to play with that and see what results I would get.
I wanted something short, but complex enough expose any goofs along the way. So I whipped up a quick sentence to use.
