Show Summary Details


Artificial intelligence (AI), the attempt to produce or imitate intelligence, is different from mechanical intelligence and the machine intelligence discussed in Chapter 5. It is not always to be associated with a science project with a predictable outcome. As several studies have already been made regarding AI, its social or philosophical significance is assessed. Marvin Minsky states that AI aims to get a machine to do something that man would do with intelligence, which is different from actually making intelligence. This chapter discusses how the creation of this sort of intelligence becomes “artificial” and also attempts to clarify other paradoxes that arise from this premise.
