Artificial intelligence.

Originally the designing of artificial intelligence programs was based on logical deduction and rational response.
In consequence it was easier to mimic the thought process of a chess master concerned with determined patterns, than a child which imagines randomly and makes improbable analogies.

To be comparable to the real thing, artificial intelligence has to accommodate subjective as well as objective processes.
And that's about the unpredictable and irrational-in other words, behaving like humans.
We are overlay impressed by the ability to calculate and rationalize, and inadequately impressed by the ability to see possibilities and make connections.

And connections, as Adam and Eve discovered, are what life is about.
