What 'human element' would this be? Doesn't a person have to
tell you who the President is, if you don't know? Is this more
impressive than having to tell the machine which fingerprint is

I find your reasoning spooky. This makes no sense to me.
Have you heard of GIGO? It stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out.
The premises are Pirsig's and the conclusion follows from them
logically. Which part of *my* reasoning makes no sense?
