David Deutsch has a fantastic article called Creative Blocks: The very laws of physics imply that artificial intelligence must be possible. What’s holding us up? [link]. I can’t recommend it any higher. In it, he outlines what he thinks the major problems are in AI research, and how fundamentally we’re thinking about in the wrong way. He argues for a core philosophical restructuring, centered around the ability to be creative. I am not (and cannot be) doing it justice. Just please, please read it.
