The AI Mirror: How to Reclaim Our Humanity in an Age of Machine Thinking by Shannon Vallor, 2024

For many, technology offers hope for the future―that promise of shared human flourishing and liberation that always seems to elude our species. Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies spark this hope in a particular way. They promise a future in which human limits and frailties are finally overcome―not by us, but by our machines.

I'm looking for some texts or philosophers who have talked about the "quantum of free will".

Specifically the weighted ball conceptual model of possessive will and the freedoms illustrated between the ball's environment and it's internal information (i.e. the weight's pos) I think it was on a hill in one example.

I can't remember if the ball has to be opaque or not for the informational theory and what copyability means for the model.

Anyone know anything like this?

Got to read some #Kierkegaard this morning. I haven't gotten past the editor's preface yet, but he does quote him a lot, so it's still enjoyable.

Haven't read any #philosophy in just about a decade. That's simply awful. :'(

Today, I’m continuing my reading of Confucius's Analects and I’m really enjoying it so far.

I feel like I’m chilling out reading Chinese parables and ethical teachings.

I have always loved studying #philosophy, but doing it in an academic context is much more difficult and requires a lot more depth than I was expecting. Not a bad thing, just an observation. :)

Venetian scholar Elena Cornaro Piscopia was born #OTD in 1646.

She was the first woman in the world to receive a doctoral degree. On June 25, 1678, Elena became the first woman to be awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree. Her doctoral examination was held in the cathedral of Padua to accommodate the large audience, including prominent scholars and nobles. The next female doctorate was granted by the University of Bologna in 1732 to Laura Bassi.

Do you know about the forefathers of #skepticism?

Skeptics question #dogma.

#Ancient skeptics known as Pyrrhonists (named for Pyrrho of Elis) sought to understand arguments from both sides until the sides had equal strength.

Once accomplished, the argument became unresolvable, & thus, the Pyrrhonist could suspend judgment & attain "ataraxia", i.e. tranquillity.

This unworried #philosophy died out after the Hellenistic period.

(Should we bring it back?)
