Such AI already exists! SIRI for example.

Voice recognition can be used everyday by the avg person. I have it on my phone but rarely use it. I was in a cell phone store yesterday and the software translated everything spoken in the demo perfectly.

I'm wondering just how much fiber optics are going to be used as wi-fi penetrates our life further.
