Description
Artificial Intelligence, Connectionism TERMS & IDEAS: Artificial intelligence: manufactured cognitive agency Computation: first, info is encoded into propositions with logical syntactic structure. Then, it is manipulatedprocessed inferentially & in a structure- sensitive manner. Computers: things that propositionally represent information using a logical syntactic structure. Interpreted automatic formal system: haugelands definition Cognition as computation: around for a long time as an idea, central to scientific revolution, necessary to explain theory of mind & to fulfill the natural imperative Scientific Revolution: opposite of Aristotleian point of view Conformity Theory: (Aristotle) how the MIND works (see below) patterns of intelligibility Parallel Decomposition: The idea that a complex machine can be broken down into a series of smaller & smaller algorithms Interpreting: making sense of decoding1 string of x, by translating it to another, OR understanding Implementation: functions vertically- between higher & lower levels- within itself (a computer can be implemented entirely algorithmically) Use: horizontally, using data from the rest of the world (often things are used heuristically) Equivocation: for example, the valid argument nothing is better than long life and happiness. A pbj sandwich is better than nothing. Therefore, a pbj sandwich is better than long life & happiness Design stance: assuming that emulating the structure of something will allow us to understand or recreate its function.
