And there goes Caledonian again, completely misrepresenting Eliezer's claims.

His arguments are completely baseless. Of course it would be very, very, very hard to make a QM model of an airplane, and attempting it now would fail miserably - Eliezer wouldn't dispute that.

But to say that a full-fledged QM model would be *guaranteed* to be less accurate than current models is downright preposterous.
