Book Description

March 1 1994 Oxford Readings in Philosophy
Is `artificial intelligence' a contradiction in terms? Could computers (in principle) model every aspect of the mind, including logic, language, and emotion? What of the more brain-like, connectionist computers: could they really understand, even if digital computers cannot? This collection of classic and contemporary readings (which includes an editor's introduction and an up-to-date reading list) provides a clearly signposted pathway into hotly disputed philosophical issues at the heart of artificial intelligence.

Product Description

From Amazon

A collection of classic articles from the field of artificial intelligence (AI), The Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence would be a good complement to an introductory textbook on AI fundamentals. The back cover of the book states that the material is intended for the university student or general reader, but don't be fooled. Unless you are a student in a supportive class setting or a general reader who happens to have a degree in engineering, you are likely to find the content difficult. The first chapter, for example, assumes knowledge of calculus. However, if you have the right preparation, you'll be treated to fifteen important papers in AI--including Alan Turing's Computing Machinery and Intelligence article, which proposed the now well-known Turing test for determining whether a machine is intelligent.

Review

`A well-timed publication - adding to previous collections in Philosophy of Mind/Philosophical Psychology.' K.A. Markham, University of Wales College of Cardiff

`This volume will be of interest to philosophers working in the fields of AI and the philosophy of mind, and to cognitive scientists generally ... It would make an acceptable textbook for advanced undergraduates or postgraduate courses in the philosophy of AI. As one has come to expect from this publisher, the book is beautifully presented.' Australasian Journal of Philosophy

`A most valuable anthology both for philosophers and practitioners of artificial intelligence.' Dr Paul Tomassi, University of Edinburgh

`Excellent collection of 15 essays dealing with the intersection of AI, cognitive science, and philosophy ... this volume of (with one exception) previously published papers would be welcome in any graduate or upper-division undergraduate course on the theoretical foundations of AI.' Minds and Machines

5.0 out of 5 stars Programmers should start here. April 19 2000
This book is a very good collection of classic papers that you should read before you even think of posting to comp.ai or any of the other AI related groups. If you're interested in AI (or anything for that matter), you need to look to the field's recognized philosophy before you do anything else.
