I accept that the most exaggerated claims were most driven by overconfidence and anthropomorphism, I accept your correcting my misstatement - you are not disappointed with old-timer AI progress, and I accept that you can reasonably think AGI is "doing it wrong." But whatever thoughtful reason you have to think you can do better, surely it isn't that others don't realize that naming a data structure "apple" doesn't tell the computer everything we know about apples.
