Listening to a piece of music, or as an audience member watching a dance or theatre performance, one assumes that the entire production, stemmed solely from the creativity of those involved....   [tags: software programs for digital music]

The Dilemma of Artificial Immunity: Vaccines - On the 28th of February 1998 British gastroenterologists, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, published a paper declaring correlations between vaccines and severe developmental disorders in children (Gerber & Offit, 2009, p. 456). Although Dr. Wakefield’s study has since then been found to be flawed, his research started a highly controversial debate between artificial and natural immunity. The reality is that we still do not know all the potential short and long-term effects vaccines may have on us. Do the side effects they pose out weighing their benefits....   [tags: Vaccines, Prevention, Disease]

Is Developing Artificial Intelligence Ethical? - Accept our robot overlords. Actually, artificial intelligences, not robots. Artificial intelligence or AI is a program that can learn and improve upon itself whether at a sub, equal or above human level. Many believe that AI would bring humanity to an end as we know it, often due to movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Terminator, however those are fictional Hollywood blockbusters, not real life.

The Dangers of Artificial Equality - Many people have fought for equality, over many centuries. The basis of inequality is a lack of freedoms. These freedoms are either on an individual basis or on a group basis. Today not many people would argue against allowing women to vote, or allowing different races to eat in the same restaurant. However at a fundamental level is equality dangerous. Can a world like that illustrated in the story “Harrison Bergeron” from Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut become a reality.

Dualism and Artificial Intelligence - Mind-body dualism is usually seen as the central issue in philosophy of the mind. The problem with mind-body dualism is that it is unknown whether the mind really is a separate entity from the human body as Descartes states in his argument, or whether the mind is the brain itself. Descartes believed that in a person existed two major components, the physical body and the nonphysical body which was called the mind or soul. As a scientist, Descartes believed in mechanical theories of matter, however, he was also very religious and did not believe people could merely be mechanical creatures that ran like “clockwork.” And so, it was Descartes who argued that the mind directed thoughts....   [tags: philosophy essays] 1249 words
