Re: The Turing test

Oddly enough, I have just been reading a book about Turing ( cor, you know when you belong eh... ) http://www.amazon.com/Man-Who-Knew-Too-Much/dp/0393052362 I think, from the context, of things, he was just speculating, as the media, at the time, liked the idea of thinking machines and being all sci...

Re: Philosophy Now on Facebook

i went on twitter this evening and twittered a lot, but, i think, listening to jazz on lyric fm was more amusing, well, apart from reading the posts from 'black swan' man, interesting to see him stating the future from the past, when, he says, in his book, the past does not predict the future

Re: new york
