"More Transistors Than Neurons" - profound words that explain why we can now build incredibly powerful analytical and computational devices to perform techical tasks way beyond the human mind. Yet we still do not have ANY real understanding of how the human brain stores and manages knowledge with complex and even abstract relationships. Thus the new amazing devices are not so different from giant, hydraulic screwdrivers, so very far away from any comprehensive intelligence as we understand it. PS: no religious inferences here, just the cold hard facts that the smart machine gurus may overlook behind enthusiasms for their indeed very admirable achievements !
