MIT Professor in History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture joins the Board of the History of AI
Professor Caroline A. Jones, MIT, has joined the History of AI Board at AIWS.net.She is a Professor in History, Theory, and Criticism of the Architecture Department at MIT.
She wrote a chapter of the book “Possible Minds: 25 Ways of Looking At AI” (2019), whose co-authors are Judea Pearl, Alex Pentland, Max Tegmark, Stuart Russell, and others. She said “Humans must truly understand intelligence to re-create it”, and “As we enshrine computation as the core of smartness, we would be well advised to think of the complexity of our ‘wet’ cognition, which entails a much more distributed notion of intelligence that goes well beyond the sacred cranium and may not even be bounded by our own skin.”
