What sense does it make to say that the “vision system” is doing this kind of mathematics, whereas the actual person has no idea how to do it?
1.9 Why would evolution tend to result in systems that act rationally? What goals are such systems designed to achieve?
1.10 Is AI a science, or is it engineering? Or neither or both? Explain.

Is the latter statement true, and does it imply the former?
1.13 “Surely animals, humans, and computers cannot be intelligent—they can do only what their constituent atoms are told to do by the laws of physics.” Is the latter statement true, and does it imply the former?
