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.
