    John ToomeyHon. Eng. 3 / H 01-15-02"Artificial Intelligence And America" Artificial Intelligence played a crucial role in our American history and the history of the world. Some view it as the vain pursuit of man to become god-like and create life, others, as the next logical step in computer technology. However, the conclusion is not nearly the most important part of it. The process of the pursuit of the creation of mechanical sentient life has also led to a much deeper understanding of how ou...

    The Human Brain Through the use of molecular biology it is thought that the hominidae family first appeared about 5 million years ago. Based on this time frame it is believed that an African Hominoid lineage was present shortly before that time, approximately 10 myp, which contained the common ancestor to both the chimpanzee and human. The split into proto-chimpanzee and proto-human occurred during the last million years of the Miocene epoch. (Changeux and Chavaillon pg. 61). The fossils, especi...

    The Study of the Mind: Mind & Thinking The objective of The Mind is to provide the reader with a unique overview of the thinking of human kind. Self-understanding is one of human kinds most ancient quests. Who am I What is my relationship to the world around me These questions marked the beginnings of philosophy. They are initiations in the search for mind, for, at least in the one respect; we are unique among all creatures. Only we are curious about our origins, the meaning of existence, and th...
  • Man Vs Machine Human Brain

    Man vs. Machine Over the years, man has come up with countless inventions, each more resourceful than the last. However, as the computer age continues, mankind is threatened. Ridiculous, some may say, but I say look around! The computer has already begun to control so many of the vital functions that man has prided himself upon before. Our lives are now dependent on a computer and what it tells you. Even now, I type this essay on a computer, trusting that it will produce a result far superior to...

    Creationism vs Evolution: Through The Eyes of Jay Gould It has been over 100 years since English naturalist Charles Darwin first told the world his revolutionary concept about how livings things develop. Evolution through natural selection and adaptation was the basis of his argument as it remains to this day a debated subject by many. Across this nation, a'return' to 'traditional' values has also brought the return of age old debated topics. One issue that truly separates Americans is the issue...

    Homo Aquaticus? I. Introduction When the human brain is compared with the brains of apes there are several obvious differences; the centers for the sense of smell and foot control are larger in apes than in humans, but the centers for hand control, airway control, vocalization, language and thought are larger in humans. In my paper, I will describe the most defined differences of brain size and centers between humans and their closest relatives, chimpanzees, to compare them with other mammals an...

    In the Age of Spiritual Machines Ray Kurzweil Once, the Earth was ensconced by an ocean of nothing, a vast wasteland of "molecular soup." It was the union of these molecules, however that soon filled that sea with what we now refer to as life. Deep within the single-celled organisms which began to populate the planet was a very basic program which soon learned to replicate itself. It then began creating more cells, and more still. In time, the program developed to adjust the full being to its su...

    Artificial Intelligence is a broad topic, consisting of different fields, from machine vision to expert systems. Nowadays with the use of high level techniques, computers have been programmed to solve many difficult problems, but the products that are available today are only a sample of what is coming in the future. AI has an interesting history and has always been on the pioneering end of computer science. In order to classify machines as "thinking", it is necessary to explain intelligence. Wh...

    Eric Finger man By a 'super intelligence' we mean an intellect that is much smarter than the best human brains in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills. This definition leaves open how is implemented: it could be a digital computer, an ensemble of networked computers, cultured cortical tissue or what have you. It also leaves open whether the super intelligence is conscious and has subjective experiences. Entities such as companies or the scien...

    The human brain and the computer in the past few decades we have seen how computers are becoming more and more advance, challenging the abilities of the human brain. We have seen computers doing complex assignments like launching a rocket or analysis from outer space. But the human brain is responsible for thought, feelings, creativity, and other qualities that make us humans. So the brain has to be more complex and more complete than any computer. Besides if the brain created the computer, the ...

    Robots, the definition from Webster s Dictionary, is an automatic device that performs functions normally ascribed to humans or a machine form of a human. Robots and robotics are growing fields that have progressed since the 1940 s. The first use of the word 'robot' was made by the acclaimed Czech playwright Karel Capek, from the Czech word for forced labor or serf. The use of the word Robot was introduced into his play Rossum's Universal Robots which opened in January of 1921. In Rossum's Unive...
  • Assessing Maslow's Pyramid From A Brain Based Perspective
    1,289 words
    In order to understand the human condition, one must first understand what it is that motivates humans. It follows that we must then look to the motivator, the brain. The human brain works in such a way as to satisfy a series of needs. Abraham H. Maslow's theory of human motivation (1954) explains the sequence by which humans move through levels of concentration so as to best satisfy these needs. Maslow's pyramid (1954), a five-tiered structure, represents a summary of this theory. Maslow (1954...

    In The Human Brain: Its Capacities and Functions, a remarkably clear and fascinating work written in 1963, the noted scientist and writer Isaac Asimov investigates how the human brain organizes and controls the total functioning of the individual. Asimov deals not only with the physical structure of the two giant cerebral hemispheres which distinguish us from other animal life, but with the brains great potential, the full extent of which we have yet to explore. The book is a companion piece to ...

    Everyone knows the story of the Piped Piper of Hamelin. He had the ability to hypnotize people with his flute by playing the most enchanting music. But he's just myth, right No one has the power to charm people with music. Well, you'd be surprised. Throughout history, music has always been recognized for its calming and almost hypnotic effects on the human mind, and for its ability to rouse and inspire the spirit. Only recently has science uncovered the truth about music. Researchers have long ...

    Dopamine As the chemical responsible for the pleasurable sensations felt by the human brain, dopamine has been found to be active in many aspects of every day life. Any physiological action that receives a positive feedback, such as a handshake, a kiss, or the use of a drug, can cause the level of dopamine activity in the brain to increase. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that relays messages from one neuron to the next. Through axons, neurons influence neurological activity in many regions, spec...

    Defining Life and Death A classical point of departure in defining Death, seems to be Life itself. Death is perceived either as a cessation of Life – or as a "transit zone', on the way to a continuation of Life by other means. While the former presents a disjunction, the latter is a continuum, Death being nothing but a corridor into another plane of existence (the hereafter). Another, logically more rigorous approach, would be to ask "Who is Dead' when Death occurs. In other words, an iden...
