Advocates of Artificial Intelligence as Behaviourists
Paul Austin Murphy has written a paper “Advocates of Artificial Intelligence as Behaviourists” in which he discusses behaviourism in AI and the theory that “if a computer (or robot) behaved as if it had intelligence (or had a mind), then, by definition, it must actually be intelligent (or have a mind).”
Computers cab perform simple tasks to more complicated tasks such as play chess and solve complicated mathematical problems. As such this is a dispaly of intelligence – is it also a display of “mind”
“i) If a computer behaves intelligently,
ii) then it is intelligent.
iii) If computer is intelligent,
v) then it must have a mind.“
