Bart Selman is quoted in an article in Business Insider investigating whether
mimicking human intelligence is the path to artificial intelligence.  Selman
uses speech recognition to say "no":

"We don't quite know how the brain does it," said Selman, but it's "probably more
complicated than the way [AI is] doing it right now": "The main progress right
now and in the near future will be getting to a performance at a human-level
without getting the details of the human brain all figured out."
