When will we know whether the machines think?
Posted on: 06.03.2018source...
There is a contention that if we want to understand whether the machines think, it is enough to compare the result of their thinking activity with the result of the human thought activity. And if at some point it turns out that a difference cannot be found between these results, it should be assumed that the machine thinks (the Turing test).
It is obvious how deeply formalism has penetrated the scientists' thinking. Machines can be made perfect enough to imitate human thinking. But that does not mean they think.
So far, the human-machine dialogue is mediated through human senses and the machine interface. However, if we want to find out whether the machines really think, it will be necessary to develop the technologies to make possible a direct connection between the human brain and the machine’s brain.
The machine thinking should not be seen as something happening in the so-called. "black box" without a clear idea of what is going on in it. It should become a complement to human thinking, and as a consequence, we are to achieve the possibility to transfer thought processes freely from the natural to the artificial brain. The result should be a moment when a person can transfer some or all of his thinking to the machine brain and vice versa.
In our opinion, this would be the surest way to get a positive response to the question of whether machines can think.
