Philosophical questions about natural and artificial intelligence (AI) are becoming increasingly important as AI continues to transform our world. While some questions raised by the rapid developments in computer science and AI research are very well-known from traditional discussions in cognitive science and the philosophy of mind, others are entirely new. This course explores both classic and contemporary debates about the relationship between minds and machines. Among the questions we shall encounter are the following: Can machines think? In what sense are brains like computers? Are machines conscious? What does it take to develop intelligent machines? How can we ensure that AI is aligned with human values and interests?

This course will be of interest to anyone who wants to look into the philosophical and conceptual foundations of biological and artificial intelligent systems. There are no prerequisites.
