The overeager adoption of big data is likely to result in catastrophes 
of analysis comparable to a national epidemic of collapsing bridges. 
Hardware designers creating chips based on the human brain are engaged 
in a faith-based undertaking likely to prove a fool’s errand. Despite 
recent claims to the contrary, we are no further along with computer 
vision than we were with physics when Isaac Newton sat under his apple tree.
