4) Make a case for or against Artificial Intelligence from a logistical or ideological standpoint. Refer to the work of Alan Turing in your response.
Alan Turing’s idea of ‘can computers think? Is challenged with how complex the human brain is and how computers only know what they are programmed with, even though ‘Deep Blue’("Deep Blue (Chess Computer)") Was able to beat chess champion Garry Kasparov in game one of a six-game match on the 10th of February 1996. Artificial Intelligence can not replicate a human’s way of thinking as it can only be programmed to be able to react to specific situations and if anything is different or new, it won’t be able to process the new situation and make a conscious decision the way a human would. Robots are incapable of thinking the way we do and are not creative, so can not come up with original ideas, this supports the theory that computers can’t think as they need other people’s ideas. Robots also have no loyalty or morals the way a human would and so can be deadly in the hands of terrorists. Another constraint of Artificial Intelligence is the fact that you have to be literal with everything you say, ‘y2k’ is an example of this as there was a chance that the computers could assume that the next year was 1900, possibly starting a world war. Another factor to consider is the religious constraints of Artificial Intelligence as especially religions and countries that are very strict, such as Islam in the Middle East, as they have laws…
