Intelligent machines and human minds

  • Elizabeth S. Spelke (a1) and Joseph A. Blass (a2)

Abstract

The search for a deep, multileveled understanding of human intelligence is perhaps the grand challenge for 21st-century science, with broad implications for technology. The project of building machines that think like humans is central to meeting this challenge and critical to efforts to craft new technologies for human benefit.
