“What Computers Cannot Do – A Philosophical Approach” by Kai Hauser (TU Berlin)
Date: Tuesday, 31 October, 2017
This talk is intended for a general audience.
Abstract: Recent developments in computer programming, information technology, and robotics have given rise to optimistic predictions about future possibilities in artificial intelligence. I will present two sets of philosophical arguments that cast this optimism into doubt. One of them suggests that there is a limitation of principle applying to any machine whatsoever.
