Description This paper discusses three up-to-date Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects focusing on the question-answering problem – Watson, Aura and True Knowledge. Besides a quick introduction to the architecture of systems, we show examples revealing their shortages. The goal of the discussion is the necessity of a module that acquires knowledge in a meaningful way and isolation of the Mind from natural language. We introduce an idea of the GuessME! system that, by a playing simple game, deepens its own knowledge and brings new light to the question-answering problem.
