That's a ridiculous segue from a computer to a TV. A TV doesn't run a
program in the way a computer does. The reason computers are so limited
is that their "perception" and "actions" are very limited. That's why a
tend to use Mars Rovers as examples. They are autonomous computer
controlled devices that have broad perceptual and action abilities.
