BITTLE_CH2_Sengers_I

I really liked this article.

I would especially refer Chris to the last section: Socially Situated AI as Technical Methodology. This might clear up the conundrum that comes from the following two statements being true:

There is such a thing as AI it is not science fiction.

and

There is no such thing as Artificial Intelligence, that is science fiction.

Briefly, the idea is that AI is what we call a technological artifact, a program, and "In this sense the agent as program is a kind of vehicle for a conception of a particular agent, which is communicated from the agent-builder through the technical artifact to the observers of or interactors with the agent." [114] Or, put another way, "a kind of communication between a human designer who is using it to embody a conception of an agent and a human audience trying to understand it." [113]

Further, this article contains several major ideas, all of which reward reading.

It's a good one. I like it. I like the article. This is an article that I like. I have a liking for this article. This article is good. Good this article is. Replete with goody goodness, the goodliness of which only the good can fully "goodify." [A term I coined in my blog article BITTLE_CH2_Sengers_I for the goodity of all.]
