We consider some of the ideas influencing current artificial–intelligence research and outline an alternative conceptual framework that gives priority to social relationships as a key component and constructor of intelligent behaviour. The framework starts from Weizenbaum's observation that intelligence manifests itself only relative to specific social and cultural contexts. This is in contrast to a prevailing view, which sees intelligence as an abstract capability of the individual mind based… Expand
The Coming Political: Challenges of Artificial Intelligence
Intelligence is the human being’s most striking feature. There is no consensually held scientific understanding of intelligence. The term is no less indeterminate in the sphere of artificialExpand

Cognitive Vulnerability, Artificial Intelligence, and the Image of God in Humans
Abstract Recent progress in artificial intelligence (AI) opens up the possibility that one day machines could do anything that a human being can do, raising thus serious questions regarding humanExpand
Man and Machine: Questions of Risk, Trust and Accountability in Today's AI Technology
This paper suggests the exploration and further development of two paradigms, human intelligence-machine cooperation, and a sociological view of intelligence, which might help address some of the concerns of risk, trust and accountability in AI technology. Expand
Memory and Emotion in the Cognitive Architecture
This paper explores issues in memory and affect in connection with possible architectures for artificial cognition. The work described in this paper represents a departure from the traditional waysExpand

  • 2003
The purpose of the set of papers presented here is to examine some key aspects of a conceptual framework for a coherent world view of technology, not in the sense of offering a fully worked out philosophy of technology--that would be a huge and complex undertaking--but rather by considering some key topics.

A Literature Review on Artificial Intelligence
Research on artificial intelligence in the last two decades has greatly improved performance of both manufacturing and service systems. Currently, there is a dire need for an article that presents aExpand
Cognitive Automation—Survey of Novel Artificial General Intelligence Methods for the Automation of Human Technical Environments
Automatic and flexible decision making based on challenging conditions such as increasing amounts of information, lacking prior knowledge of data, incomplete, missing or contradicting data, becomes the key challenges for future automation technologies. Expand
What If Robots Surpass Man Morally? Dehumanising Humans, Humanising Robots in Ian McEwan‟s Machines Like Me
Ian McEwan’s fictional works and the interviews with him contribute to the appreciation of his worldview. As a sign of his human-centred approach to life, McEwan puts emphasis on the maintenance ofExpand
Animals and AI. The role of animals in AI research and application – An overview and ethical evaluation
Abstract Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and their fields of application are among the most debated developments of recent times. Although being widely discussed academically, publicly andExpand


Intelligent agents: theory and practice
The aim in this paper is to point the reader at what they perceive to be the most important theoretical and practical issues associated with the design and construction of intelligent agents. Expand
Intelligence without Representation
The fundamental decomposition of the intelligent system is not into independent information processing units which must interface with each other via representations, but into independent and parallel activity producers which all interface directly to the world through perception and action. Expand
Mental Models : Towards a Cognitive Science of Language
Mental Models offers nothing less than a unified theory of the major properties of mind: comprehension, inference, and consciousness. In spirited and graceful prose, Johnson-Laird argues that weExpand
Intelligence Without Reason
It is claimed that the state of computer architecture has been a strong influence on models of thought in Artificial Intelligence over the last thirty years. Expand
Epistemological Problems of Artificial Intelligence
This chapter further explains this division of AI, explains some of the epistemological problems, and presents some new results and approaches. Expand

  • 1990
The goal is to design programs that will simulate human cognition in such a way as to pass the Turing test, and to distinguish these two approaches, the authors call the first strong AI and the second weak AI. Expand
Forecasting and Assessing the Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Society
The artificial intelligence field was examined in a systematic manner, and a Delphi study was conducted among experts in the artificial Intelligence field to solicit their opinion concerning prototype and commercial dates for the products, and the possibility and desirability of their applications and implications.
