Schemel Forum Evening Course:

Artificial Intelligence: Science Fiction or Science Fact?


The course will examine the theory and practice of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Our central questions will be: Can human mental states (e.g. perceptions, beliefs, desires, fears, etc.) be replicated in non-biological systems? We will attempt to determine whether AI has reached (or is reaching) firm scientific footing or remains stalled as mere science fiction.
