01) Noam Chomsky: Elon Musk’s Neuralink won’t work!


“#NoamChomsky #Descartes #MarvinMinsky Noam is one of the the most cited scholars in history and it is impossible to ignore his opinions. You may differ with many of them, as I do. But you cannot simply ignore him. Therefore, I was fascinated by Noam’s ideas on the Turing test and its connection to, and implications for, Musk’s Neuralink. It was in-depth, despite his overarching consonance with Turing’s view: “The question whether machines can think is too meaningless to deserve discussion” to which Noam adds “It’s kind of like asking whether submarines can swim.”

Noam’s thoughts on Elon Musk’s Neuralink project aren’t a secret (https://www.inverse.com/article/32395-elon-musk-neuralink-noam-chomsky) but he goes into a more nuanced account of neural nets and the pursuit of cognition in our discussion.”
