I think you missed a "not" in there, or else you have completely misunderstood. We do not have anything remotely like the probes in Alien Planet. There's a reason the story was set in the 22nd or 23rd centuries - it's science fiction.
Of course. The premise of the show is to build upon our current level of technology [AI] and project forward as a docu-fiction.
I was just wondering to what level as depicted on the show ours has reached the one's as seen on the show. And I was wondering generally if Watson is the most advanced super computer on the planet today and if it is even close to that level within 80 to 100 years of advancement.
