Is AI possible ? Even strong AI ? In a debate with a colleague, the concept of Strong AI arose. I had to look it up. Strong intelligence (stronger than human intelligence) sounds good, but it is just science fiction unless you allow for a living thinker.
For intelligence requires free choice (free will), and no nonliving machine has that, for one thing because machines are closed systems. Nor can a machine perform intentional acts, and thinking is essentially an intentional act.
