  • Mood:

a little bit of philosophy

Had a rather intriguing philosophy class today and some questions evolved from the topic- We're applying ethics to epistemological and metaphysical fields and seeing where we end up.

Anyway, thought I'd share the questions, see if anyone has a perspective?

1) What is it to think?
2)What is intelligence?
3)Why have humans invented machines that 'think'?
4) Are machines/computers becoming more like us, or are we becoming more like them?
5)If it were possible to create an artificial human- ie, a pump for a heart, a computer for a brain, capable of consciousness- would it be right to do so?

I'll share my answers a bit later on. I want to think about it some more.
