I am reading Roger Penrose's Shadows of the Mind (just started). He opens the book by arguing again that consciousness cannot be computational even in principle. This got me thinking about IA etc and I came up with the following that I call Royce's Theorem. If a process is completely computational, the process is not intelligent and does not contain or take intelligence to perform or complete. Whatever intelligence involved is that of the inventor, designer and/or programmer of the computational algorithm. Once that is done the rest is simply data processing according to the rules of the algorithm, not an intelligent process itself but one of duplication, repetition and rote. Such actions do not involve actual thinking, intelligence, awareness or consciousness. We used to call it plug and chug. Once the formula is known or given, plug in that data and hit the go button. This can and does have many implications but I would rather toss this up and have it batted around awhile before getting into any implications.
