Re: "It's fake smart."

My instinct is that this should have been obvious from the mathematics underlying CNN's. Yet apparently no one picked it up.

Or was it that people did, but hoped no one would notice?

People did, and published research about it. It's just that research was largely ignored by lay readers, image-recognition-technology boosters, and the press.

As usual, though, the Reg commentariat assume they're smarter and more knowledgeable than the people actually working in the field.
