H2078: Can computers think? in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 02, 2016)
This course serves as a brief foray into the philosophy of artificial intelligence, where we ask the question “can a computer ever think?” To this end, we will discuss the “Turing Test” to ascertain the intelligence of a machine, its inadequacies as exposed by John Searle’s Chinese Room argument, and whether the notion of computers “thinking” is itself confused.
