My box of books just arrived. Now you know what all of my family and best local friends are getting for Christmas this year.
Some books continue to be read long after the hype of their release has passed. These books contain compelling ideas and stories that speak to our humanity and inspire us to seek out the truth.
As Denyse O’Leary asks, “Why is it comparatively easy to develop a program to play chess, as opposed to teaching a robot to walk freely?”
It’s strikes me that this is a difference between design and Darwinian thinking.
I sometimes wonder if hype about artificial intelligence, the wonderful or terrible things it will do for or to us, functions as a deliberate distraction.
