“The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence: An Examination of Thinking v. Simulating,” is broken down into three major sections. In section II, I present to the reader different definitions of intelligence and create a working definition for the essay. In section III, I give a brief history on the rise of artificial intelligence (A.I.) and the definition of artificial intelligence. After developing definitions of intelligence and artificial intelligence in section IV, I try to determine the difference (if there is one) between intelligence and artificial intelligence. It is in this section where I propose a different way to think about Turing’s new formed question in the imitation game. Instead of determining whether machines can simulate human…show more content…
Creativity is the ability to see things when others see nothing. It is seeing the day before the sunrise. Seeing the whole picture before all of the pieces are put together. Not everyone can do this. Creativity helps in the processes of reasoning and problem solving which both are involved in intelligence. An intelligent person has the ability to be presented with complex issues, analyze and work through those issues to find a workable solution. The role of reason in intelligence is the use of logic in solving problems or making decisions. When a person uses reasoning that person is structuring information in a way that would lead to certain conclusions and excludes other conclusions. Moving down the list to memory, I include memory in my basis of intelligence list because memory is connected to learning. To learn, a person must retain the information being taken in. Therefore, memory plays a key role in the capacity to learn. Particularly, working memory is especially important. In the article “Working Memory,” author Alan Baddeley states that “working memory refers to a brain system that provides temporary storage and manipulation of the information necessary for such complex cognitive tasks as language comprehension, learning, and reasoning” (1). In regard to language, language is a cognitive trait of intelligence because language involves communicating with others. Whether in the form of speech, reading, writing or body gestures, language enables us to organize and release our
