Human minds/brains are products of biological evolution, and can be improved upon in many ways (e.g. fallible memories). Systems that act humanly: Subjective definition and is not amenable to mathematical analysis. Furthermore, encourages needless imitation of humans. Systems that think rationally: Many problems are computationally intractable if solved in a laws of thought manner. Systems that act rationally (tricky one): Such systems attempt to obtain the best possible outcome. The extreme flexibility of this definition is its strength and also, at times, its weakness. It is not easy to specify what the best outcome is with increasingly complex problems (in contrast, it is easier to just say that the behavior should be similar to human behavior for such problems) i.e. the definition is vague. (There are other possible criticisms, for some of which I awarded marks if I felt they were reasonable. This was a question many students had trouble with.) 2.
