Summary:This is the first book-length presentation and defense of a new
theory of human and machine cognition, according to which human
persons are superminds. Superminds are capable of processing
information not only at and below the level of Turing machines
(standard computers), but above that level (the "Turing Limit"), as
information processing devices that have not yet been (and perhaps
can never be) built, but have been mathematically specified; these
devices are known as super-Turing machines or hypercomputers.
Superminds, as explained herein, also have properties no machine,
whether above or below the Turing Limit, can have. The present book
is the third and pivotal volume in Bringsjord's supermind quartet;
the first two books were What Robots Can and Can't Be (Kluwer) and AI
and Literary Creativity (Lawrence Erlbaum). The final chapter of this
book offers eight prescriptions for the concrete practice of AI and
cognitive science in light of the fact that we are superminds.
