5. How to build a person : a prolegomenon [1989]

 Book — 1 online resource (xi, 189 pages) : illustrations
 Summary

Building a person has been an elusive goal in artificial intelligence. This failure, John Pollock argues, is because the problems involved are essentially philosophical; what is needed for the construction of a person is a physical system that mimics human rationality. Pollock describes an exciting theory of rationality and its partial implementation in OSCAR, a computer system whose descendants will literally be persons.In developing the philosophical superstructure for this bold undertaking, Pollock defends the conception of man as an intelligent machine and argues that mental states are physical states and persons are physical objects as described in the fable of Oscar, the self conscious machine.Pollock brings a unique blend of philosophy and artificial intelligence to bear on the vexing problem of how to construct a physical system that thinks, is self conscious, has desires, fears, intentions, and a full range of mental states. He brings together an impressive array of technical work in philosophy to drive theory construction in AI. The result is described in his final chapter on "cognitive carpentry." John Pollock is Professor of Philosophy and Cognitive Science at the University of Arizona. A Bradford Book.

For centuries, people have been fascinated by the possibility of building an artificial system that behaves intelligently. From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein monster to the computer intelligence of HAL in 2001, scientists have been cast in the role of creator of such devices. Now there is a new entry into this arena, neural networks, and "Naturally Intelligent Systems explores these systems to see how they work and what they can do. Neural networks are not computers in any traditional sense, and they have little in common with earlier approaches to the problem of fabricating intelligent behavior. Instead, they are information processing systems that are physically modeled after the structure of the brain and that are "trained to perform a task rather than programmed like a computer. Neural networks, in fact, provide a tool with problemsolving capabilities  and limitations  strikingly similar to those of animals and people. In particular, they are successful in applications such as speech, vision, robotics, and pattern recognition. "Naturally Intelligent Systems offers a comprehensive introduction to these exciting systems. It provides a technically accurate, yet downtoearth discussion of neural networks. No particular mathematical background is necessary; it is written for all interested readers. "Naturally Intelligent Systents clearly explains the underlying concepts of key neural network designs, how they are trained, and why they work. It compares their behavior to the natural intelligence found in animals  and people. Throughout, Caudill and Butler bring the field into focus by presenting actual applications that illustrate neural networks' utility in the real world. MaureenCaudill is President of Adaptics, a neural network consulting company in San Diego and author of the popular "Neural Network Primer" articles that appear regularly in "AI Expert. Charles Butler is a Senior Principal Scientist at Physical Sciences in Alexandria, Virginia. He is a specialist in neural network application development. A Bradford Book.
