How does this guy know we will probably never make anything as sophisticated as the Holodeck on Star Trek TGN? I mean what does he base his statement on? We are making advancements in general AI every year and it's only a matter of time before the machines we create start creating even more advanced and sophisticated machines. So in a sense he's correct in saying that we will probably never build a Holodeck but the machines we build probably eventually will.

can't really count out what the future could hold; as far as the star trek hologram deck reference goes..

Absolutely! It's physically impossible based on humanity's current understanding of physics and technology, but it's certainly possible that future discoveries could change that.
