second, they are just plain stupid.
But theirs is a strange kind of stupidity which is masked by apparent
intelligence. The paradox is evident in devices that can relentlessly
execute calculations at blistering speeds but which cannot
But the snappily named ISO 18629 programming language is set to change

suited for the exchange of process planning, using artificial
intelligence and language analysis to represent computer commands in
the context of an understood plan.
Researchers have incorporated approximately 300 concepts, such as
'duration' and 'sequence', into its software structure.
Just 300 concepts may not sound particularly significant, but behind
its obscure name and modest positioning the language could be the
start of a revolution that sees the arrival of 'intelligent and
