Architects of the Mind: A Blueprint for the Human Brain
From the time of the earliest electronic computers, man has dreamed of replicating the human mind in silicon. Are there unbridgeable physical problems that make such a machine impossible, or does each advance in artificial intelligence bring us closer to realizing the dream?
Are there essential features of the physical make-up and workings of a brain that prevent us, even in theory, from creating a machine that truly thinks? If a next-gen computer claimed to be sentient, how would we know whether it was telling the truth? Architects of the Mind: A Blueprint for the Human Brain explores robust memory, processing speed, and programming, and how close we are to re-creating the human brain.
