Science: Brian Christian: Humans Vs. Computers
Through his participation in the 2009 Turing Test, Brian Christian examines how computers are reshaping our idea of what it means to be human. As a contestant in the annual artificial-intelligence-vs.-human battle, the poet, science writer, and former Seattleite, author of The Most Human Human, hoped to be deemed "more human" than a computer. In the end, he discovered philosophical, biological, and moral issues raised by the Turing Test, and wonders: If computers can reason, what does that mean for the special place we reserve for humanity? Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
