Daniel Dennett Consciousness Explained From Bacteria to Bach and Back The Evolution of Minds WordPress blog

Daniel Dennett is undoubtedly one of the most influential, original, but also most controversial contemporary thinkers in the philosophy of mind. As a representative of a consistently naturalistic view of complex topics such as consciousness, intentionality and free will, he is one of the few philosophers who are known beyond the disciplinary boundaries, especially in the circles of cognitive neuroscience. Dennett’s main concern is to reconcile our everyday understanding of consciousness and personality with scientific ideas about mental processes and to put it on an evolutionary basis. Daniel C. Dennett books: Content and Consciousness, appeared in 1969, followed by Brainstorms (1978), Elbow Room (1984), The Intentional Stance (1987), Consciousness Explained (1991), Darwin’s Dangerous Idea (1995), Kinds of Minds (1996), and Brainchildren: A Collection of Essays 1984-1996 (MIT Press and Penguin, 1998), Freedom Evolves (Viking Penguin, 2003), Sweet Dreams: Philosophical Obstacles to a Science of Consciousness , was published in 2005 by MIT Press, Breaking the Spell (Viking, 2006). He co-edited The Mind’s I with Douglas Hofstadter in 1981. He is the author of over four hundred scholarly articles on various aspects on the mind, published in journals ranging from Artificial Intelligence and Behavioral and Brain Sciences to Poetics Today and The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. His most recent books are Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking (Norton, 2013), Caught in the Pulpit: Leaving Belief Behind, with co-author Linda LaScola (Amazon.com, 2013), and From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds (Norton, 2017). He gave the John Locke Lectures at Oxford in 1983, the Gavin David Young Lectures at Adelaide, Australia, in 1985, the Tanner Lecture at Michigan in 1986, and the Copernicus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at Krakow in 2017, among many others.

Demis Hassabis – DeepMind Technologies – Alphabet Inc.  – Superhumans – String Theory.

Demis Hassabis co-founded DeepMind, a London-based machine learning ( AI ) startup, with Shane Legg and Mustafa Suleyman who is a British artificial intelligence researcher, neuroscientist, video game designer, entrepreneur, and world-class games player has predicted that Artificial Intelligence will be “one of the most beneficial technologies of mankind ever” but that significant ethical issues remain.

DeepMind Technologies is currently owned by Alphabet Inc. DeepMind Technologies goal is to “solve intelligence”, which they are trying to achieve by combining “the best techniques from machine learning and systems neuroscience to build powerful general-purpose learning algorithms”. They are trying to formalize intelligence in order to not only implement it into machines, but also understand the human brain, as Demis Hassabis explains: ” attempting to distil intelligence into an algorithmic construct may prove to be the best path to understanding some of the enduring mysteries of our minds “.
In 2014, DeepMind received the “Company of the Year” award from Cambridge Computer Laboratory. In September 2015, DeepMind and the Royal Free NHS Trust signed their initial Information Sharing Agreement (ISA) to co-develop a clinical task management app, Streams. After Google’s acquisition the company established an artificial intelligence ( AI ) ethics board.

John Bell himself explains the implications of his inequality duding a talk organized by Antoine Suarez (Center for Quantum Philosophy) at CERN. Nonlocality cannot be avoided. The EPR experiment does not invalidate quantum mechanics. The “connection” between measurements of “distant” entangled particles may not be “action at a distance,” as Einstein feared, but Bell finds no satisfactory explanation.
