Product Description

Product Description

The goal of artificial intelligence (AI) is to create a computer program or machine that is capable of human intelligence. What philosophical locks must we unpick before we can agree that an artificial mind is possible? That, in a nutshell, is this book, which is aimed at undergraduate psychologists but should be interesting for the general reader.

It examines models of thought, weak and strong AI, consciousness, free will, the Frame Problem, expert systems, robotics, and the ethics of artificial minds. Thinkers include Noam Chomsky and Alan Turing. I also cover cognitivism, functionalism, intentionality, and reductionism.
