Turing seu lindo

Turing, Alan (October 1950), “Computing Machinery and Intelligence”, Mind LIX (236): 433–460, doi:10.1093/mind/LIX.236.433

Se a máquina é capaz de pensar…

Se há um pensamento que não é humano…

Qual a definição de máquina? – Maquina, Magia e Poder, raiz etimológica

Máquina em Deleuze e Guattari.


“Of course electricity usually comes in where fast signalling is concerned, so that it is not surprising that we find it in both these connections. In the nervous system chemical phenomena are at least as important as electrical. In certain computers the storage system is mainly acoustic. The feature of using electricity is thus seen to be only a very superficial similarity. If we wish to find such similarities we should took rather for mathematical analogies of function.” p. 439

A imagem formada por unidades discretas – pixels e não mais a “janela” para o mundo. Apesar de ainda existirem os processos óticos e a imagem ainda ser pensada em termos de câmera aparatos óticos, um outro tipo de paradigma não baseado em imagem, mas em capacidade de armazenamento e processamento.

“This is reminiscent of Laplace’s view that from the complete state of the universe at one moment of time, as described by the positions and velocities of all particles, it should be possible to predict all future states.” p 440

digital computers fall within the class
of discrete state machines. But the number of states of which
such a machine is capable is usually enormously large

“The popular view that scientists proceed inexorably from well established
fact to well-established fact, never being influenced by any unproved conjecture, is quite mistaken. Provided it is made clear which are proved facts and which are conjectures, no harm can result. Conjectures are of great importance since they suggest useful lines of research.” p 442

“I do not wish to give the impression that I think there is no
mystery about consciousness. There is, for instance, something
of a paradox connected with any attempt to localise it. But I
do not think these mysteries necessarily need to be solved before
we can answer the question with which we are concerned in
this paper.” p 447
