1 thought on “Video: The death of Turing and birth of misconceived artificial intelligence

    I don’t recall who said this, but here goes… “It is absurd to suppose one can make a computer attain consciousness (true AI) by writing code.” Rather pontifical, perhaps, but a good expression of the nonsense involved in trying to shoehorn the ability to think into digital code. Note that all ‘intelligence’ in the real universe is analog, not digital, but Analog computers were abandoned in the fifties and sixties because they were too difficult to code and to understand. (As an engineering student in the 60s I spent a short time in the TRIDAC building at Farnborough. )
