Just uploaded: AI-Crisis of Science
Searle assumes the current paradigm, computationalism, as he must in order to argue against AI’s position. But if AI is in a crisis of science then that’s the wrong conceptual framework. Use a different one, and the argument’s dire conclusion doesn’t follow (because the premiss computers necessarily compute is false).
In the article, I suggest a different paradigm for understanding AI’s machine. This lacks the concepts of both computation and the symbol.
