The Emperor's New Mind : Concerning Computers, Minds, and the Laws of Physics, Paperback Book

The Emperor's New Mind : Concerning Computers, Minds, and the Laws of Physics Paperback

Part of the Oxford Landmark Science series

Description

For many decades, the proponents of 'artificial intelligence' have maintained that computers will soon be able to do everything that a human can do.

In his bestselling work of popular science, Sir Roger Penrose takes us on a fascinating tour through the basic principles of physics, cosmology, mathematics, and philosophy to show that human thinking can never be emulated by a machine. Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.
