Jeff Hawkins, who created Graffiti for Palm is co-author of a great book which touches deeply into why current computer technology fails so badly at things the human brain does well--like vision and speech recognition. The book is "On Intelligence" co-written with Sandra Blakeslee. In the book, Hawkins discusses how human (and other) brains use relatively simple decision making and vast access to memory and abstraction to interpret messy input like speech or vision. He makes a good argument about why current approaches to things like general speech recognition can't get beyond a certain hump and proffers a theoretical new approach based on human wetware instead of computer hardware. One of the best books I've ever read (okay, listened to) on the subject. More info at
