In this weirdy-colored & fedora-ed episode, I talk a little about some persistent myths about what artificial intelligences will never be able to do (including “love” or “understand paradoxes”) that are perpetuated by science fiction.
Hats. Man, that was a bad idea.
Also a bad idea: Cartesian (or substance) dualism, the belief that some floaty spiritual substance which exists outside of our bodies is responsible for “mind.”
The first episode, in which I lay some ground rules & helpful guidelines for argumentation, online & elsewhere.
This is the first THUNK video I ever uploaded, in which I explain why I started the series & what I hope it will achieve.
They are nice shelves.
