The following paper is probably the best document which describes the death of “Good Old Fashion AI”.
Okay, it might be a bit long for the casual blog readers. But Professor Dryfus makes a compelling case for the death of traditional AI, and why its future depends on Heideggerian philosophy.

Only then can we begin to create artificial intelligence that represents that which we can only now imagine in Science Fiction.
It’s a fascinating topic.
