The Brain is a Computer
What are the computational principles?
How can we find them out?
How will we know if we succeed?
Analogy: Birds fly but we don’t build planes with feathers and flapping wings.
Turing (1950) ``Computing machinery and intelligence'':
``Can machines think?''
``Can machines behave intelligently?''
Operational test for intelligent behavior: the Imitation Game
Predicted that by 2000, a machine might have a 30% chance of fooling a lay person for 5 minutes (Loebner Prize)
