Artificial Intelligence

SESSION 3: Radhadesh, Belgium - 1988 / (203)

Thompson considers the question, “Can a computer have intelligence, as we understand it in human beings?” In response, he examines a variety of concerns involving the human intellect, which contains subtle features that challenge an exclusively algorithmic analysis. Thompson proposes that creativity, language, learning ability, and facial recognition, could all invite the necessity of a “programmer” outside of an exclusively mechanistic system.
