What (if anything) makes thinking different from mechanical computation? Is thinking something that computer programs like ChatGPT can do?

Join us for a presentation on the philosophy of mind relating to artificial intelligence by Dr Clas Weber, followed by a Community of Inquiry on the question: "Can ChatGPT think?". Clas is a UWA philosopher of mind, langauge and metaphysics who is currently researching the prospects of mind-uploading.

📅 Wednesday, 30th August
⏰ 4:00 - 5:00 pm
📍 Location: Ezone 206

➡️ A Community of Inquiry is a method of group philosophy where the purpose is to arrive at a mutual understanding of the topic through asking questions and developing our reasoning.

The UWA Undergraduate Philosophy Society would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we will meet, Whadjuk boodja of the Noongar people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
