A lot of talk about artificial intelligence and machine learning recently. A few days ago, while looking through the iA dictionary, I noticed that there’s an entry on it too, with a link to an Aeon article on the metaphors used to explain AI:
“Your brain is not a computer.”
A distinction between machine intelligence and consciousness: Oliver Reichenstein also pointed to another, more convoluted, article on the topic in a series of tweets, and Thomas Basbøll has some thoughts on the “rootedness of experience in the body” too. All of which reminded me of an interview I read a while back – on how we might be able to create a computer that is conscious, but it won’t be a digital one.
