Why do I think AI is overblown?

Why do I think AI is overblown?  Take a look at what it takes for the relatively simple problem of extracting a list of ingredients from a recipe.  It's a very nice example of something that is trivially easy for normal humans, but intractably difficult for computers.

I especially enjoyed the declaration of victory with an 89% accuracy rate per sentence.  That means a recipe with 20 sentences in it would contain, on average, about two errors.  That's victory?
