Abstract: What is Common Sense Computing? And why is it so important for the technological evolution of humankind? This paper presents an overview of past, present and future efforts of the AI community to give computers the capacity for Common Sense reasoning, from Minsky's Society of Mind to Media Laboratory's Digital Intuition theory, and beyond. Is it actually possible to build a machine with Common Sense or is it just an utopia? This is the question this paper is trying to answer.
