It is sometimes held that computer scientists would make better progress in developing sophisticated artificial-intelligence programs if only they knew more about how human beings think. This view is, however, open to the objection that not a single major step forward in airplane design has come from any insights into the nature of bird flight.

The objection above draws on an analogy that assumes that artificial-intelligence programs are similar to which of the following?

(A) Theories of human thought
(B) Blueprints for airplanes
(C) Hypotheses about how science achieves progress
(D) Computer simulations of birds in flight
(E) Research into the nature of bird flight

The assumption must be related to the design of planes, and thanks to Ai we could design it better.

The analogy must be related to the design of the flight.

I.E we do use AI adheres to the design of planes to have better insights

E is out of scope and misleading.

Ask if something is still unclear.
