Re: Computer voice for Trek XII - With Majel gone, now what?

whoa I saw this today!

Google Developing Star Trek-inspired Voice Assistant Code-named “Majel”
http://trekmovie.com/2011/12/14/goog...e-named-majel/

Google News has 365 results today for this:
Google Android Siri opponent codename Majel, aka Star Trek Computer
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&g...68l697l3.3l6l0

this is really great news.
Gee just wondering if Google footed the bill for trasferring DAT tapes, editing into words, cataloging them and creating a database and licensing it from Paramount/CBS for say 10 years would CBS allow it to happen?

There is also a thread over in the TrekBBS Science and Technology subforum:
"Majel"--Google's answer to Siri
