Ludwig Wittgenstein

Wittgenstein Explained

When an Artificial Intelligence study claims to study “curiosity” as a mental process, it’s pretty safe to assume that the team behind said study is not looking to Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations for inspiration.

That’s because identifying “curiosity” with a “mental process” (perhaps replicable in silicon) is the kind of superstitious thinking from which LW hopes to set us free.
