comment I don't know C. And why should I learn it?
@Jason, the only commonality I was suggesting is that most folks find that trio of languages harder to pick up on the fly, and so it might be worth the OP's while to spend some time with them before an immediate need to use them arises. Pointer arithmetic and functional programming don't have much in common except that people seem to have to stare at them longer before they make sense.

comment How to teach a script to detect sarcasm?
As for the quality of the answers here, I have to say this is partially your responsibility. Natural language processing is a well known field that could provide you with several useful techniques, but you give no indication of having done any research to look up existing methods. It's a tough problem, and not something that can be usefully be answered in general in a SO post. Many, many, books have been filled on the topic of natural language processing.

comment How to teach a script to detect sarcasm?
I really think you want to stick with the phrases because sarcasm is all about context, and there are at least a few phrases that are more likely to be used sarcasticaly. "Yeah" isn't sarcastic, "Right" isn't sarcastic, but "Yeah, right!" is probably used more often sarcastically then sincerely.

comment Is there a reason for initial overconfidence of scientists and engineers working on artificial intelligence in the 1960s?
@user10326, certainly most references still classify Machine Learning as a branch of AI, but I get the impression that a lot of folks working in ML would frown at you if you told them they worked in AI. I think they'd tell you that pragmatically, ML is a branch of statistics, and doesn't provide any particular insight into intelligence, artificial or otherwise.
