Nice! I found the contrary dude. I’ll have to look more into him but I like what I see so far. Hubert Dreyfus: I may be a fan of this unpopular guy who has been poking and prodding at AI promises since the 1950s. He doesn’t get the credit but I believe he should: He emphasized early on that symbolic manipulation would _not_ be enough to simulate intelligence and that the sub-systems (unconscious/subconscience) is critical, as it can put the symbols into context, which mere symbolic manipulation (think: Turing) cannot. The efforts in AI with neural networks and complexity along with the linked data efforts of the late 00s/early 10s, *are* starting to generate parts of that necessary unconsciousness but there’s a long way to go yet for it to be independent *and* viable, if at all.
