Brain is not needed if no body

Marketing and PR mainstream studies and developments in the field of AI positions them as a sequence of progressive steps: from simple applications for smartphones and smart speakers to create a human general-purpose AI.

So Luciano Floridi almost formulated the metaphor of an irresistible limitation of the mainstream approach to the AI. Need a change of strategy:


I me this topic launched by post

And it seems, after 4 years, we finally approached the revolutionary situation.

As the topic of embodied intelligence in Mainstream, interested readers needed


Posted by peeping — especially attractive occupation on the verge of perversions. Arrangement of transcription of scientific and popular texts are akin to this. But I still decided on it, for, if not me, then the cat 😊.

Derik Bowundes retells and edits those of Bookret’s main positions, with whom he agrees (while trying to read the book in every way to find a huge amount of evidence). Derik decided to write such an arrangement of the book Barrett, because On his (and my) taste, the book does not have enough systematic and structuredness (this was the fee for simplicity and style oriented to the widest range of readers).

I will act as a «peeping peeping» in the hope that, as well as for the preparation of whiskey, the «double distillation» will benefit the final product.

As a result of this classical view, social institutions and legal systems of humanity are formed on the basis of the assumption that

But in fact, emotions are not at all universal and vary from culture to culture. Countercake attempts to identify universal physical templates for at least one emotion (for example, in the expression of the face, heart rate, blood pressure or brain activity patterns) were vain. The newest studies come to the conclusion that neurocodes of emotions among the peoples of various cultures are completely different. For example, the conceptual structure of fear in the Germans and Russians are completely different: somewhat simplifying, it means that «

But despite the many refutations of classical looks on emotions, they still prevail in public discourse. These views are intuitively understandable to most people and attractive for them, as if taking off their responsibility for bad actions committed under the influence of emotions.

The theory of the designed emotions Barrett debunks classic views. Based on experimental data, Barrett shows that:

«… Emotions are not embedded, but composed of basic parts. They are not universal, but different for different cultures. They do not start themselves; You create them. They arise as a combination of the physical properties of your body and a plastic brain, which establishes relations with the medium where it is developing, and culture and education that provide such an environment. Emotions are real, but not in the objective sense, in which the molecules or neurons are real. They are real in the same sense in which money is real — that is, it is hardly an illusion, but rather a product of people’s agreement. «


All this, at least, nonsense.

Instead of all this, Barrett considers emotions through the process

If so, then emotions are not at all reactions to the outside world, which were rejected during evolution and now exist in the form of several of the most beneficial to the evolution of forms.

Emotions are part of a large computing process that is continuously busy brain.

All this computing process is subordinated

And last for today.

Another principal conclusion from the theory of designed emotions is that

If the basis of fear, for example, «five details of Lego», then this is not at all fear, but pleasure. And the sixth detail will be added — and there is no pleasure, and there is a sweaty, sticky, shocking fear.
