"Google, for instance, feels more lifelike everyday -- in large part by mimicking biological knowledge generation. Think, "machine aided cognition on steroids." Automating high level functions without being overly encumbered on the front end by slow theoretical development is a huge advantage over past methods of discovery. If it is tested in real-time against a very large user population on a continuous basis, all the better."
