Mind as Society (#S705)

Conscious intelligence may be viewed as a computer system composed of many smaller parallel processing programs. The late Marvin Minsky, Ph.D., was one of the acknowledged founders of the mathematical theory of computation, artificial intelligence, and robotics. He argues that understanding the individual as a very sophisticated machine actually affirms human dignity.

EXCERPT:

"When I talk, I haven't the slightest idea of the processes that produce the words. So how I make the words is not conscious."
--Marvin Minsky
