Here’s an interesting piece from the humanities section of the New York Times – a bit old but worth the read (awesome how a piece from two weeks ago is already “old.” INTERNETS!¡). Points on morality, philosophy, and existentialism on and for machines are rather thoughtfully drawn out. Recommended.
