While compelling, the model of human intelligence as software is problematic. Recent dramatic advances in machine learning seem to validate the model, but this could be misleading. Are we fundamentally the same as computer programs, just running on different hardware? In this talk, he will examine a number of points where the model breaks down. He then examine the role that models play in engineering and contrast it with the role they play in science, suggesting that the artificial intelligences that we are creating may differ fundamentally from human intelligences. The pertinent question becomes not whether our models accurately reflect intelligence in humans, but rather whether we can build physical artifacts that behave like intelligent models.
Edward A. Lee has been working on embedded software systems for 40 years, and after detours through Yale, MIT, and Bell Labs, landed at Berkeley, where he is now Professor of the Graduate School in EECS. His research is focused on cyber-physical systems. He is author of leading textbooks on embedded systems and digital communications, and has recently been writing books on philosophical and social implications of technology.Enregistrer
