Smart Machines

The question of whether computers can think is like the question of whether submarines can
swim. ― Edsger W. Dijkstra
To be human is to be ‘a’ human, a specific person with a life history and idiosyncrasy and point
of view; artificial intelligence suggest that the line between intelligent machines and people blurs
most when a puree is made of that identity. ― Brian Christian
Maybe the only significant difference between a really smart simulation and a human
being was the noise they made when you punched them. ― Terry Pratchett
I think they are a better race than humans ever were. ― Angelo Tsanatelis
The AI does not hate you, nor does it love you, but you are made out of atoms which
it can use for something else. ― Eliezer Yudkowsky
Our ultimate objective is to make programs that learn from their experience as
effectively as humans do. We shall…say that a program has common sense if it
automatically deduces for itself a sufficient wide class of immediate consequences
of anything it is told and what it already knows. ― John McCarthy
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity. ― Anon.
I visualize a time when we will be to robots what dogs are to humans, and I’m rooting
for the machines. ― Claude Shannon
Artificial intelligence is that field of computer usage which attempts to construct
computational mechanisms for activities that are considered to require intelligence
when performed by humans. ― Derek Partridge
