These machines are not thinking beings who do our thinking for us

We have invented computers to save us the trouble of computing. These machines are not thinking beings who do our thinking for us, but rather devices that produce the results of calculations without anyone literally calculating or thinking […] We need not fear that our machines will out-think us — though we might well fear that they will lead us to cease to think for ourselves.

—Peter Hacker on Wittgenstein in Ray Monk and Frederic Raphael (eds.), The Great Philosophers (2000).

Cfr. Luciano Floridi: “AI is about decoupling successful problem solving from any need to be intelligent”.
