From Deep Learning to Rational Machines (Oxford University Press)
Friday, 29 December 2023

Subtitled "What the History of Philosophy Can Teach Us about the Future of Artificial Intelligence", this book provides a framework for thinking about foundational philosophical questions surrounding the use of deep artificial neural networks ("deep learning") to achieve artificial intelligence. Specifically, Cameron J. Buckner  links recent breakthroughs to classic works in empiricist philosophy of mind 

<ASIN:0197653308 >

This book explains how recent deep learning breakthroughs realized some of the most ambitious ideas about these faculties from philosophers such as Aristotle, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), John Locke, David Hume, William James, and Sophie de Grouchy. It illustrates the utility of this interdisciplinary connection by showing how it can provide benefits to both philosophy and computer science.
