The Margin: The one technological advancement Bill Gates says he’d like to see before he dies

Bill Gates on Monday finished up his fifth “Ask Me Anything” chat on Reddit, where he answered dozens of questions covering everything from health care and philanthropy to raising kids, and, of course, the current state of the country.

One question, however, drew an inordinate amount of attention, and that was from a guy named qaziee, who asked, “What kind of technological advancement do you wish to see in your lifetime?”

Gates said “the big milestone” will be when computers can read and understand information like humans. “There is a lot of work going on in this field — Google GOOG, -0.73% Microsoft MSFT, -0.39% Facebook FB, -0.64% academia,” he said.
