PHIL 26 Philosophy and Computers

The accomplishments of artificial intelligence research and the widespread use of computers in our society confront us with many interesting philosophical questions. What are the limits of artificial intelligence? Could computers ever think or feel? Is the Turing test a good test? Are we really computers? Are there decisions computers should never make? Do computers threaten our privacy in special ways? This course will consider such issues in order to explore the philosophical implications of computing. Open to all classes.
