Updating Worldviews one World at a time

Interest is now reviving in artificial intelligences that are able to imitate humans, thanks to revolutionary advances in technology, such as microchips that mimic brain cells, researchers say. The idea of computers advanced enough to perfectly mimic humans was most famously proposed by British mathematician Alan Turing, who helped the Allies win World War II by breaking top-secret Nazi codes. “Turing was without any question one of the founders of the modern computer age,” said Robert French, research director of cognitive science at the French National Center for Scientific Research.”He was an absolute genius. I don’t use that word very often, but he was.” (via How New Tech Is Reviving Hope of Humanlike Computers | Innovationnewsdaily.com)
