Digital theory presentation

  1. 1. Computer Sapience Or why James Cameron was wrong A presentation by Michael Power
  2. 2. Turing V. Searle  The Turing Test (1950)  Computer fools human interrogator into being human  Responds to interrogator's questions  Understands the questions, thinks of an answer  The Chinese Room (1980)  Native English speaker fools other human into believing it understands Chinese  Simply translates prompts into English with book  Doesn't actually understand Chinese
  3. 3. Strong AI  No Machine today can pass the Turing test – lacks Strong AI − Strong AI – Artifical Intelligence that is equal to or greater human intelligence  Even if we have Strong AI, can we prove the computer really understands? (Chinese room problem)  Bonus Question: How do we even know what Strong AI looks like?
  4. 4. Strong AI in popular culture  Dystopia  Utopia that turns Dystopian
  5. 5. What if it's neither?
  6. 6. Technophobia  Humanity is immediately suspicious of robots equally or more intelligent than themselves  Strong AI could succeed in society – Robot judges, psychiatrists, etc.  Is that what humanity wants?
  7. 7. No. It Isn't.  http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/02/01/sex.robo t/
  8. 8. The Internet: Hope?  Neither Turing nor Searle could have expected the influence of the World Wide Web  Could significantly change things for our understanding of intelligence... (human and otherwise)
