    AI effect

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AI_effect

    The AI effect occurs when onlookers discount the behavior of an artificial intelligence program by arguing that it is not real intelligence.

    Author Pamela McCorduck writes:

    “It’s part of the history of the field of artificial intelligence that every time somebody figured out how to make a computer do something—play good checkers, solve simple but relatively informal problems—there was chorus of critics to say, ‘that’s not thinking’.”

    AIS researcher Rodney Brooks complains

    “Every time we figure out a piece of it, it stops being magical; we say, ‘Oh, that’s just a computation.'”
