Techopedia explains Gedanken

In the world of IT, “gedanken” is often used to describe projects that are elegantly described, but not actually coded. In many cases, critics feel that the programming ideas underneath the project just are not possible. For example, someone could draw up schematics for a cyborg without actually showing how the embedded technologies would allow for things like vision, strength or other features.

That word “gedanken” is often used in the context of “AI-complete” technologies or in reference to progress toward artificial intelligence. This is in part because artificial intelligence is so controversial, and the extent to which computers will be able to mimic human cognitive ability is so often debated today.
