Why Artificial Intelligence Isn't Intelligent

A funny thing happens among engineers and researchers who build artificial intelligence (AI) once they attain a deep level of expertise in their field. Some of them—especially those who understand what actual, biological intelligences are capable of—conclude that there's nothing "intelligent" about AI at all. Whatever it is called, though, surely what matters most about AI is the way it is already transforming what can seem like almost every industry on earth?

And yet, across the fields it is disrupting or supposed to disrupt, AI has fallen short of many of the promises made by some of its most vocal advocates—from the disappointment of IBM's Watson to the forever-moving target date for the arrival of fully self-driving vehicles.
