Superminds (ISBN10: 140201094X; ISBN13: 9781402010941)
ISBN13: 978-1402010941
ISBN10: 140201094X

Summary: This is the first book-length presentation and defense of a new theory of human and machine cognition, according to which human persons are superminds . Superminds are capable of processing information not only at and below the level of Turing machines (standard computers), but above that level (the "Turing Limit"), as information processing devices that have not yet been (and perhaps can never be) built, but have been mathematically specified; these devices are known as super -Turing machines o
r hypercomputers. Superminds, as explained herein, also have properties no machine, whether above or below the Turing Limit, can have. The present book is the third and pivotal volume in Bringsjord's supermind quartet; the first two books were What Robots Can and Can't Be and AI and Literary Creativity . The final chapter of this book offers eight prescriptions for the concrete practice of AI and cognitive science in light of the fact that we are superminds.
