AI and Philosophy: How Can You Know the Dancer from the Dance?
July/August 2005 (vol. 20 no. 4)
pp. 84-85
Aaron Sloman was teaching philosophy at the University of Sussex in 1969, when he met Max Clowes. Clowes had done pioneering work in computer image interpretation. Now, he was asking Sloman to drop the way he learned to do philosophy at Oxford and to start studying artificial intelligence instead. Nine years later, Sloman published The Computer Revolution in Philosophy, in which he extolled AI's power to extend our ability to think. He's been examining the "deep continuity" between AI and very old problems in philosophy ever since.
