In the NYTimes Magazine, may require registration, in particular looks at language translation. We followed this for years, and at that time translation was never good enough for our purpose.

The article includes some interesting translation examples. We are getting remarkably close to consistent value. There is work and re-work still to be done. Also covers its relationship to the history of AI which I have been involved in for some time. Long and largely non technical article.
