Great quote from +Peter Norvig in this article: "Understanding the brain is a fascinating problem but I think it’s important to keep it separate from the goal of AI which is solving problems ... If you conflate the two it’s like aiming at two mountain peaks at the same time—you usually end up in the valley between them .... We don’t need to duplicate humans ... We want humans and machines to partner and do something that they cannot do on their own."

The key point is that AI doesn't care about building real intelligence. The goal is building useful systems that seem intelligent and enhance our own intelligence.
