ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE
Artificial intelligence has been and still is one of the core disciplines of contemporary cognitive science. It raises fascinating questions: can robots think? Is artificial intelligence really intelligence? Could artifacts be conscious? What can we learn about the human mind from building robots? How should intelligent robots be built? We will survey the main controversies that artificial intelligence has provoked.
