Weizenbaum Dennett Brockman I 48
Weizenbaum/DennettVsWeizenbaum/Dennett: [Weizenbaum](1) could never decide which of two theses he wanted to defend: AI is impossible! or AI is possible but evil! He wanted to argue, with John Searle and Roger Penrose, that “Strong AI” is impossible, but there are no good arguments for that conclusion. Dennett: After all, everything we now know suggests that, as I have put it, we are robots made of robots made of robots . . . down to the motor proteins and their ilk, with no magical ingredients thrown in along the way.
