Description
In this mind-expanding book, artificial intelligence (AI) pioneer Marvin Minsky offers a fascinating new model for how our minds work. He argues that emotions, intuitions, and feelings are not distinct things, but are different modes of thinking. By examining these different forms of mind activity, Minsky says, we can explain why our thought sometimes takes the form of carefully reasoned analysis and at other times turns to emotion. He shows how our minds progress from simple, instinctive kinds of thought to more complex forms, such as consciousness or self-awareness. And he argues that because we tend to see our thinking as fragmented, we fail to appreciate what powerful thinkers we really are. Indeed, says Minsky, if thinking can be understood as the step-by-step process that it is, then we can build artificial intelligences that not only can assist with our thinking by thinking as we do, but also have the potential to be as conscious as we are.
