Artificial Intelligence and Human Cognition: A Theoretical Intercomparison of Two Realms of Intellect

Synopsis

Wagman examines the emulation of human cognition by artificial intelligence systems. Human thought and computer thought are compared in their distinctiveness and commonality. The book provides detailed examples of artificial intelligence programs (such as the FERMI System and KEKADA program) accomplishing highly intellectual tasks. This, together with his coverage of general theoretical perspectives on the nature of cognition makes this volume both a valuable sourcebook and stimulus for students and professionals in cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, and artificial intelligence courses.
