Artificial intelligence and the body: Dreyfus, bickhard, and the future of AI

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

For those who find Dreyfus’s critique of AI compelling, the prospects for producing true artificial human intelligence are bleak. An important question thus becomes, what are the prospects for producing artificial non-human intelligence? Applying Dreyfus’s work to this question is difficult, however, because his work is so thoroughly human-centered. Granting Dreyfus that the body is fundamental to intelligence, how are we to conceive of non-human bodies? In this paper, I argue that bringing Dreyfus’s work into conversation with the work of Mark Bickhard offers a way of answering this question, and I try to suggest what doing so means for AI research.
