Further Reflections on AI

This morning, I woke up pretty early and did some grading. My judgement led me to think that certain people I have read are correct on some things. Some more correct than others. I also reflected upon myself, something I refer to as meta-cognition. I did this to try to explain myself and my actions. (I think I usually have O.K. self-insight.)

It occurred to me, as well, that my computer does not have meta-cognition. Nor can it really do philosophy or develop the kind of judgement I have. which I coin “retail judgement.”

I checked over my own work to judge whether it was correct. It was. So then I blurted out: Program for that, bitches.

It’s probably impossible to program something like a computer for that kind of thing. And, besides, the body, as Wittgenstein observed, is the best image of the soul. And I like mine human.
