Machine Minds

On this article.
1. Duh.
2. You want something like #erlang for fault tolerance / cellular modelling, of course.
3. They're still getting the metaphors wrong. We're not trying to model brains, and we're not trying to model computers; we're ultimately trying to model the logical progression of experience itself in the first-person; that's phenomenology.
Curiously enough, this article kinda agrees with my third-point.
... because our appreciation of the brain, is a model that is contingent upon... more piecewise fundamental structures of experience that are antecedent to our modelling of the brain. Sigh. This is why I didn't go into academic neuroscience. Myopic dumbfuck language whatnot. Beh tahan.
