Re: All known public AI algorithms are just a trick.. that is why!

Over the years thinkers have metaphorically and literally linked the human mind to the fantastic creation of the day. Flows, clocks, and steam engines have all served as models of the human mind by renowned thinkers like Hippocrates, Descartes, Freud. These devices were, at the time, the ultimate manifestations of human thought. That we think very fast matrix multipliers are the basis of thought is both a credit to the devices, and a dishonour to millions of years of evolutionary processes.

If such a metaphor helps to simplify the outline of such a complex field, that is all well and good, but remember how long it took to discredit Freuds theory of repression, which was really just a ‘back port’ of steam engine thinking.....
