Help looking for past post September 11, 2018 11:28 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an article (or possibly a comment) from Mefi or Ask expressing skepticism about AI and the ability of computers to mimic the human brain because people have previously made that assumption about other versions of the hot new tech (like maybe the steam engine?)

You may be thinking of this 2005 comment from orthogonality or this 2012 comment from DU.

Or maybe this 2017 comment from abulafa.

Or this 2016 comment from zompist.

It seems to be a perennial observation.

sounds a bit like this 2015 comment from lubujackson: Google will never totally predict what you want to search for because life is a chaotic system.
