The Limits of Artificial Intelligence

A new ACM Ubiquity article addresses what the author, Alexandru Tugui, believes are limitations of artificial intelligence that cannot be overcome. The article is primarily concerned with AI as a simulation of biological intelligence rather than with the creation of real machine intelligence. Even so, some of his objections seem a bit odd, such as the claim that AI can never truly simulate biological intelligence because it is limited to 1s and 0s whereas biological intelligence can have intermediate values. A CD player is a computer that deals only with 1s and 0s, yet it seems to simulate analog music quite easily.
