"I think the grandiose promises about the capabilities of artificial intelligence are a running gag from Silicon Valley. To this day, no computer understands a simple children's story you read to it. Processors don't know that you don't come back after you die or that you can pull but not push with a string. Computers calculate, brains understand. Recognizing a good friend from 60 meters behind is easy for us. A computer can't do that. It doesn't have a good friend. But it can multiply 73 by 26 in a flash. A person who can do that usually doesn't have a good friend either."
