Before attempting to interact with artificial, biological or a hybrid intelligence it is necessary to first formally define and specify what is it that we are attempting to interact with. Shane Legg provides a thorough survey of definitions of human and machine intelligence and methods to test both. Shane Legg got his Phd from the University of Lugano ( and is a co-founder of deepmind.
Before coming:
We will form groups of 3-5 to review our text. Assume the identity of a Phd comittee member/reviewer. You will be assigned a group on registration and will be expected to share your review on the day of the meeting.
We will be using Piazza for discussing questions before the session, please don’t hesitate to post any questions on your mind.
