     "Intelligent" Holds "Paranormal" Connotations

    As soon as AI successfully solves a problem, the problem is no longer a part of AI. Pamela McCorduck calls it an "odd paradox," that "practical AI successes, computational programs that actually achieved intelligent behavior, were soon assimilated into whatever application domain they were found to be useful in, and became silent partners alongside other problem-solving approaches, which left AI researchers to deal only with the "failures," the tough nuts that couldn't yet be cracked."[3]

    "Interesting. Seems similar to the notion that "paranormal" things become "normal" once there are scientific explanations for them."
