It's possible in theory, but unfortunately it is a very difficult task.

When you start using "smart" to describe an operation it can often be something that is very difficult to translate into a software algorithm.

Software unfortunately is totally not "smart" - it only does exactly what it is told and it is very difficult to translate things like human judgement into the kind of explicit instructions that are required for program code...
