Mind as Machine

Mind as Machine

Professor Maggie Boden, pioneer in cognitive science, meets the world's leading experts in Artificial Intelligence to find out how far the technology has come and what the future holds for AI and, importantly, whether it can help psychologists and philosophers explore what the human mind really is.

Fifty years on from the Dartmouth Conference, the meeting that gave birth to the field of AI, Mind as Machine will give a rare opportunity to hear leading philosophers Daniel Dennett and John Searle, AI experts Marvin Minsky and Rod Brooks from MIT and psychologists exploring the enduring questions about AI and the human mind.
