QUARESMA, Alexandre. Artificial intelligence and the problem of intentionality. PAAKAT: rev. tecnol. soc. [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.18, e403.  Epub 28-Ago-2020. ISSN 2007-3607.

In this article, we will investigate how intentionality in the biological world happens, what conditions are necessary for its manifestation, how the upper animals objectively deal with it in their structural couplings with the environment, correlating it (intentionality), as a genuinely biological phenomenon, with the difficulty of instantiating conscious and intentional intelligences in complex and artificial cybernetic-informational systems. More specifically, we refer to trying to do so -as it defends orthodox cognitivism- in computers, androids and robots, through AI arrangements (artificial intelligences). It is noteworthy that this problem of intentionality is closely related to problems we have already discussed in previous works (artificial intelligences and the problem of consciousness; Artificial intelligences and the Limits of computation), in the sense that, only a system or being a living biological is able to possess these three faculties-important properties at the same time; namely: consciousness, intentionality and emotion.

Palabras llave : Artificial intelligence; Intentionality; Limits of computing; Criticism of technology.
