Future Talk - The Natural Logic of Artificial Intelligence
Computers are machines, so we tend to think they work like all the other machines we know. They don't. Computers are a new kind of machine, quite unlike any other machine we have ever seen. If we use computers to make stuff, to produce physical objects, computers make stuff following a technical logic that is the opposite of that of all mechanical machines we knew during the modern industrial age. And if we use computers to process information, and think, or something similar to that, computers seem to think following a logic that is the opposite of that of modern science.
