>Moravec's paradox is the discovery by artificial intelligence and robotics researchers that, contrary to traditional assumptions, high-level reasoning requires very little computation, but low-level sensorimotor skills require enormous computational resources. The principle was articulated by Hans Moravec, Rodney Brooks, Marvin Minsky and others in the 1980s

Yeah, so where's this "high level reasoning", 30+ years on?

I was going to say the same thing. Programming should be just high level reasoning but we’ve yet to automate that.
