Sometime in the future the intelligence of machines will exceed that of human brain power. So are we on the edge of an AI-pocalypse, with superintelligent devices superseding humanity, as predicted by Stephen Hawking? Or will this herald a kind of Utopia, with machines doing a far better job at complex tasks than us? You might not realise it, but you interact with AIs every day. They route your phone calls, approve your credit card transactions and help your doctor interpret results. Driverless cars will soon be on the roads with a decision-making computer in charge. But how do machines actually think and learn? In Machines That Think, AI experts and New Scientist explore how artificial intelligence helps us understand human intelligence, machines that compose music and write stories - and ask if AI is really a threat. ABOUT THE SERIES New Scientist Instant Expert books are definitive and accessible entry points to the most important subjects in science; subjects that challenge, attract debate, invite controversy and engage the most enquiring minds.

Historical and contemporary papers on the philosophical issues raised by the Turing Test as a criterion for intelligence. The Turing Test is part of the vocabulary of popular culture—it has appeared in works ranging from the Broadway play "Breaking the Code" to the comic strip "Robotman." The writings collected by Stuart Shieber for this book examine the profound philosophical issues surrounding the Turing Test as a criterion for intelligence. Alan Turing's idea, originally expressed in a 1950 paper titled "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" and published in the journal Mind, proposed an "indistinguishability test" that compared artifact and person. Following Descartes's dictum that it is the ability to speak that distinguishes human from beast, Turing proposed to test whether machine and person were indistinguishable in regard to verbal ability. He was not, as is often assumed, answering the question "Can machines think?" but proposing a more concrete way to ask it. Turing's proposed thought experiment encapsulates the issues that the writings in The Turing Test define and discuss. The first section of the book contains writings by philosophical precursors, including Descartes, who first proposed the idea of indistinguishablity tests. The second section contains all of Turing's writings on the Turing Test, including not only the Mind paper but also less familiar ephemeral material. The final section opens with responses to Turing's paper published in Mind soon after it first appeared. The bulk of this section, however, consists of papers from a broad spectrum of scholars in the field that directly address the issue of the Turing Test as a test for intelligence. Contributors John R. Searle, Ned Block, Daniel C. Dennett, and Noam Chomsky (in a previously unpublished paper). Each chapter is introduced by background material that can also be read as a self-contained essay on the Turing Test

Reminiscences Of Los Alamos 1943 1945

Although the World War II efforts to develop nuclear weapons have inspired a very large literature, it struck us as noteworthy that virtually nothing existed in the form of firsthand accounts. Now It Can Be Told, by General Leslie Groves, the Manhattan Project's military commander, is probably the most prominent exception, but the scientists themselves seem to have shown little interest in publishing their reminiscences. Believing that it would be not only worthwhile for posterity, but ex tremely interesting for the present generation to hear about the aspirations, fears, and activities of those who participated in this watershed of science and government collaboration, we arranged the public lecture series repre sented by this book.! We chose to focus upon Los Alamos since the project's efforts culminated there. The isolated laboratory in New Mexico was created to design and construct the first atomic bombs. More scientific brainpower was accumulated there than at any time since Isaac Newton dined alone, and the interactions with this community are of sociological interest, as the results of their work are of political import.

The Papalagi

It's normal for westerners to travel in different worlds from their own and then write about their experiences. It's a lot less common to come across someone from another world who describes what they have experienced in our world. We westerners are centered in our cultural reality and take it for granted while that of others is only considered in a peripheral way. When this viewpoint is shattered the egocentric western outlook is deeply disturbed. So, almost a century ago the German poet Enrich Sheurmann was the first, followed by millions, to delight in the reminiscences of the Tuavian Chief, who, on his return to Samoa described to his people the Westerner, the Papalagi, and how he lives. That account is certainly one that shouldn’t be forgotten on the bookshelf as having already been read. In its simplicity and frankness it is ready at any moment to shine a blessed ray of light on the clouded heart of western man. But the time of Tuavii is already long gone. The Papalagi has not stopped his mad race and his world meantime has changed. A descendant of Tuavii, Apineru, chief of a small community left his little island for about a year travelling to the west in the seventies. In Papalagi Act II, Apineru while sitting on his mat, describes what he has seen and experienced to his family members and other islanders that visit him of evenings in his hut. What is the everyday life of a westerner, what are progress, television and freedom to a man, seemingly uncultured, yet with only the good and well-being of his virgin island at heart? His style follows no logic, there’s no false pretence in his criticisms and the impressions that he communicates and the images that he describes do not follow any classical line of analysis that the Papalagi are used to. Apineru cuts through all the usual paradigms simply with the freshness of his sentiment, in the poetry and magic of his singular imagination, provoking us to smile and look beyond the daily shortcomings of so called modern life. Available in German, French and Italian. The original version of the Papalagi edited by Erich Sheurmann has been published in English by Legacy Editions in 1997, under the title Tuiavii's way. The text (no copyright) can be read also here http://www.nonduality.com/papalagi.htmIndex "The Papalagi poisons himself day after day, word after word, action after action, mouthful after mouthful. He doesn’t die straight away as was about to happen to me, but a bit by bit, day after day. In the end, he is dead even without realizing it. But now too much time has passed from the moment that the poisoning has begun and so the dead Papalagi doesn’t remember anything of how life was at the beginning. So the Papalagi behaves like the protagonist of that story that a village chief told me when he visited our island on the day I got married. It is told that a certain Ira left his island where he had his father, mother, brothers and sisters to look for pearls on other islands even though you could find marvellous pearls in the sea around his. He reached another island in his canoe and stayed there for a while finding pearls, but a bit smaller than those found around his. So he left even that island to go to another, then another again, finding pearls but always smaller. He arrived at a sixth island, and here the pearls were so small that you could hardly see them. One morning he took his canoe out and reached a seventh island. He landed and here he met some men and women to whom he immediately tried to sell his merchandise. Straightaway the islanders recognized him as the brother who had left a long time before, who, from a seeker of precious pearls, had transformed into a collector of empty shells. In fact he had returned to the island from which he had begun his adventure, but he wasn’t aware of it..."

How To Do Everything

It may not be great literature — but at least it's handy. From the mastermind of the hugely successful The Red Green Show comes a book that is going to change your life, or at least make you laugh — a lot — whenever you pick it up. And people are going to be picking it up for many years to come, because — like the long-rerunning TV shows — there's not a topical gag in the book anywhere, so it's going to be funny for the forseeable future. And as its title suggests, this is also a terribly useful book. Among its very many gems of advice, it shows how to cook with acetylene, take revenge on a lawn mower, measure your hat size with a two-by-four, reduce your carbon footprint (it involves moving into a fruit tree located next to a liquor store) and make your own alternative fuel (which involves an empty propane tank and a full septic one).

Ray Kurzweil is the inventor of the most innovative and compelling technology of our era, an international authority on artificial intelligence, and one of our greatest living visionaries. Now he offers a framework for envisioning the twenty-first century--an age in which the marriage of human sensitivity and artificial intelligence fundamentally alters and improves the way we live. Kurzweil's prophetic blueprint for the future takes us through the advances that inexorably result in computers exceeding the memory capacity and computational ability of the human brain by the year 2020 (with human-level capabilities not far behind); in relationships with automated personalities who will be our teachers, companions, and lovers; and in information fed straight into our brains along direct neural pathways. Optimistic and challenging, thought-provoking and engaging, The Age of Spiritual Machines is the ultimate guide on our road into the next century. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Food is not only something we eat, it is something we use to define ourselves. Ingestion and incorporation are central to our connection with the world outside our bodies. Food's powerful social, economic, political and symbolic roles cannot be ignored - what we eat is a marker of power, cultural capital, class, ethnic and racial identity. Bite Me considers the ways in which popular culture reveals our relationship with food and our own bodies and how these have become an arena for political and ideological battles. Drawing on an extraordinary range of material - films, books, comics, songs, music videos, websites, slang, performances, advertising and mass-produced objects - Bite Me invites the reader to take a fresh look at today's products and practices to see how much food shapes our lives, perceptions and identities.
