hmmmm, how can it actually have common sense?

A computer program is trying to learn common sense by analysing images 24 hours a day.

The aim is to see if computers can learn, in the same way a human would, what links images, to help them better understand the visual world.

The Never Ending Image Learner (NEIL) program is being run at Carnegie Mellon University in the United States.

The work is being funded by the US Department of Defense's Office of Naval Research and Google.

Examples of the links that NEIL has made include the facts that cars are found on roads and that ducks can resemble geese.
