Faith in the Algorithm, Part 1: Beyond the Turing Test

  title={Faith in the Algorithm, Part 1: Beyond the Turing Test},
  author={Michael A. Rodriguez and Alberto Pepe},
Since the Turing test was first proposed by Alan Turing in 1950, the primary goal of artificial intelligence has been predicated on the ability for computers to imitate human behavior. However, the majority of uses for the computer can be said to fall outside the domain of human abilities and it is exactly outside of this domain where computers have demonstrated their greatest contribution to intelligence. Another goal for artificial intelligence is one that is not predicated on human mimicry… 
Swarming Models for Facilitating Collaborative Decisions
The paper highlights the computational power of swarming models (i.e., stigmergic mechanisms) to build collaborative support systems for complex cognitive tasks such as facilitation of group decision

    The Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence
  • 1950
The question, “Can machines think?” is considered, and the question is replaced by another, which is closely related to it and is expressed in relatively unambiguous words.
Cognitive Logic versus Mathematical Logic

  • Philosophy, Computer Science
  • 2004
Though first-order predicate logic theories have been very successful in many domains, their application in cognitive science and artificial intelligence shows fundamental differences from human reasoning in similar situations.

This book provides fairly comprehensive coverage of recent research developments and constitutes an excellent resource for researchers in the swarm intelligence area or for those wishing to familiarize themselves with current approaches e.g. it would be an ideal introduction for a doctoral student wanting to enter this area.
The second self: Computers and the human spirit
In The Second Self, Sherry Turkle looks at the computer not as a “tool,” but as part of our social and psychological lives; she looks beyond how we use computer games and spreadsheets to explore how
Parallel distributed processing: explorations in the microstructure of cognition, vol. 1: foundations
The fundamental principles, basic mechanisms, and formal analyses involved in the development of parallel distributed processing (PDP) systems are presented in individual chapters contributed by
A symbolic-connectionist theory of relational inference and generalization.
The authors present a theory of how relational inference and generalization can be accomplished within a cognitive architecture that is psychologically and neurally realistic and demonstrate the sufficiency of the model by using it to simulate a body of empirical phenomena concerning analogical inference and relational generalization.

Suppose that a movie camera is focused on a tadpole confined in a small bowl of water. The camera runs continuously for three weeks, and at the end of that time there is a frog in the bowl. At 24
A feedforward architecture accounts for rapid categorization
It is shown that a specific implementation of a class of feedforward theories of object recognition (that extend the Hubel and Wiesel simple-to-complex cell hierarchy and account for many anatomical and physiological constraints) can predict the level and the pattern of performance achieved by humans on a rapid masked animal vs. non-animal categorization task.
Free culture - the nature and future of creativity
To lose the authors' long tradition of free culture, Lawrence Lessig shows, is to lose their freedom to create, the freedom to build, and, ultimately, their freedom to imagine.
