To brain or not to brain, that is the question...
In an era of machine learning and artificial intelligence, there may be nowhere that is not unveiled by the light of information and data measurement.
The unfolding patterns, exploratory revelations and emergent complexity of Artificial Intelligence may not ultimately reveal itself to be as useful to us as we (and all our aspirations) turn out to be to it.
If automation is only limited by the boundaries of what we can describe, are we actually capable of describing those entities, processes, objects and systems of non-trivially sophisticated complexity with which we all must eventually and inevitably engage ?
Is AI-generated art an omen of things to come ? Are we writing ourselves out of our own story ?
What does an attempt to generate an artificially intelligent Theory of Mind (of the existence of intentions, experiences and inference of probable future actions) in other entities reveal about our own existential circumstances and the fundamental uncertainties of our own experience ?
