A continuation of the long deceased comp.ai.philosophy in which logical people used to argue about the philosophical aspects of AI and philosophy of mind in general. Now that USENET has been shut down, long live ai-philosophy!
Our subjects are mainly, but not limited to, philosophy of mind, artificial intelligence, computation, and language. We frequently find ourselves discussing aspects of philosophy of science, physics, mathematics. We also like to discuss different CS approaches to AI, ethical questions raised by AI, and other issues surrounding AI, including a bit of humor every now and then. As usual, people are passionate about their views about these fundamental subjects, and they will try hard to maintain their position. However, we do try to entertain a variety of views in this group, as long as they respect the scientific understanding of the world. Thus, if you are a creationist, this group is not for you! The founders of this group think that religion and in general mysticism are obsolete approaches to answer the significant questions about intelligence.
There are experts and inexperts in our group. Feyerabend once said that "the voice of the inexpert must be heard", and this is a place to voice your opinion. However, we cannot afford to tolerate trolls, spammers and flamewars. There has been, unfortunately, enough of that on USENET.
To join our group, please briefly tell us who you are and and your interest in the subject matter. You must supply enough information
to convince the moderators that you are not a bot.
