CascadiaPrime Cognition - Philosophy

The study of artificial intelligence is inherently interdisciplinary. Philosophy provides useful insights. And there are moral issues and understandings to impart to our artificial intelligence platforms.

Courtesy of Chat GPT: "Philosophy offers the field of artificial intelligence (AI) several useful insights. It can help in defining the fundamental concepts of AI, such as intelligence, cognition, and consciousness, and exploring the ethical and moral implications of developing and using AI systems. Philosophical theories of mind, epistemology, and metaphysics can also provide a conceptual framework for understanding AI systems and their limitations. Additionally, philosophical analysis can help in developing more transparent and accountable AI systems by addressing questions of bias, fairness, and explainability.
