Adventures in Thinking

Posted 13 Dec 2004 at 17:29 UTC by steve Share This

Two new articles on big thinkers have turned up. First is an Investor's Business Daily article on Alan Turing's life and imagination. It covers some of the historical aspects of his life as well as touching on cryptography, artificial intelligence, robotics, and brain-mind metaphysics. The summary of Turing's life also conveniently leaves out the more controversial bits and the cause of his death. For a more complete look at Turing's life, see the Wikipedia article. A more recent thinker on similar problems, Ray Kurzweil, is intereviewed by DevSource. Kruzweil discusses reverse-engineering the brain, embedded intelligence, and even has a comment or two about synthesizers.
