"Human-like is not the same as human”
Susan Schneider is one of the world's most prestigious thinkers on nature of the self and the mind. She is the founding director of the multidisciplinary Center for the Future Mind at Florida Atlantic University, where she brings together insights from philosophy, AI, cognitive science and astrobiology to understand emerging technologies and the future of the mind. Her recent book, Artificial You: AI and the Future of the Mind, discusses the philosophical implications of AI, and, in particular, the enterprise of “mind design”. Professor Schneider’s work has been featured on BBC World News, Fox News, PBS and The National Geographic Channel, and in the feature film, Supersapiens: the Rise of the Mind. Her current work is detailed on her website.
