Стр. 83 - This work was supported in part by the US Army (Signal Corps), the US Air Force (Office of Scientific Research, Air Research and Development Command), and the US Navy (Office of Naval Research); and in part by the National Science Foundation.
Стр. 13 - -to quote his own words " against the ultimate development of mechanical consciousness, in the fact of machines possessing little consciousness now. A mollusc has not much consciousness. Reflect upon the extraordinary advance which machines have made during the last few hundred years, and note how slowly the animal and vegetable kingdoms are advancing. The more highly organized machines are creatures not so much of yesterday, as of the last five...
Стр. 13 - A bird is an instrument working according to mathematical law, which instrument it is within the capacity of man to reproduce with all its movements, but not with a corresponding degree of strength, though it is deficient only in the power of maintaining equilibrium. We may therefore say that such an instrument constructed by man is lacking in nothing except the life of the bird, and this life must needs be supplied from that of man.
Стр. 15 - The human memory is a filing system that has a far greater capacity than that of the largest thinking machine built. A mechanical brain that had as many tubes or relays as the human brain has nerve cells (some ten billion) would not fit into the Empire State Building, and would require the entire output of Niagara Falls to supply the power and the Niagara River to cool it.

Psychologists long ago developed "intelligence quotient...

It is a remarkably fast and phenomenally accurate moron" (Andree, 1958). 5, The Argument by False Attribution Typical of this type of argument is the following: The Manchester machine which was set to solve chess problems presumably proceeded by this method, namely by reviewing all the possible consequences of all possible moves. This, incidentally, reveals...
Стр. 33 - Before closing, a comment on the question "when?" It is one thing to say it is possible to push machine capabilities way out in the continuum of intelligence, but it is another thing to say when. It was over four hundred years from da Vinci to the Wright brothers. But the sands of time in the scientific world have been flowing much more rapidly of late. Advances now made in a decade compare with earlier steps which took a century. Few would have believed in 1950 that man would hit the moon with a...
Стр. 21 - ... sins of the positivists." Exaggerated claims of accomplishments, particularly from the publicity departments of computer manufacturers, have resulted in such a strong reaction within the scientific community that many swing too far in the opposite direction. Da Vinci and Flying At this point allow me to paraphrase the quotation of da Vinci's, with which this paper was begun, and also, with the benefit of hindsight, expand on it somewhat. Thus, he might have said: When men understood the natural...
