Mitchell Kapor and Ray Kurzweil weigh in on the following bet:
“By 2029 no computer - or “machine intelligence” - will have passed the Turing Test.”
Artificial intelligence is a tricky business. At this point I wonder if it is all but impossible. Cognitive science is concerned with the “mechanization of the mind, not the humanization of the machine.” (Jean-Pierre Dupuy, 2000) So technically as a cognitive scientist I should not even be concerned with AI (although I could never stop myself.) However, could achieving one form, “mechanization of the mind” for example, be equal to achieving the other?
