In his bestselling work of popular science, Sir Roger Penrose takes us on a fascinating tour through the basic principles of physics, cosmology, mathematics, and philosophy to show that human thinking can never be emulated by a machine.
A physicist who believes that some aspects of the human mind will never be duplicated by artificial intelligence here supports his view with material drawn from quantum mechanics, brain structure and other theories. 75,000 first printing.
One of the best books you can find on the human mind
This book is what hooked me into the weird and awesome world of the science and philosophy of consciousness. I simply can’t recommend it highly enough, especially if you are looking for a solid explanation of how Turing Machines work.
