Mind Vs. Computer

Unknown - 1996
Rate this:
May (computer science, George Mason U. and Virginia Tech) explores the limits of computer intelligence and human consciousness, arguing that computers will never be as powerful as science fiction leads us to believe. He romps through the sciences in quest of unsolvable questions using nonmathematical explanations, analogies, and examples. Some of the popular topics he explores are whether computers can have consciousness, questions of free will and cosmology, the future of virtual reality, and theories exemplified by "real-world" laws, resource allocation, and economics.
