While large factions within the philosophy of mind still seem to struggle over the relationship between mind, world, meaning, intentionality, subjectivity, phenomenal experience, personhood and autonomy, Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers a clear and concise set of answers to these basic questions, as well as avenues of pursuing their eventual understanding. In the view of AI, minds are computational machines, whereby computationalism is best understood as the most contemporary version of the mechanist world view.
In the lecture, I will briefly address some of the basic ideas that will underlie a unified computational model of the mind, and especially focus on a computational understanding of motivation and autonomy, representation and grounding, associative thinking, reason and creativity.
