Leibniz Paper

Leibniz is known for showing a transcendental number is related to a simple infinite series. His development of calculus with Leibniz is known as the calculus of infinitesimals.

Science is necessary for true happiness, a certain Method is not known to everybody.

Experiments in physics are known to be rather difficult and expensive, metaphysics are impossible.

The language and love of god inspires Leibniz to continue to seek understanding in his efforts, to free up the human mind and make possible the frontiers of greater discovery.

How would the belief in God inspire people to produce their greatest work? How would it deter people from producing their best work?

Turing Paper

Turing moved into the University of Manchester to being the design of the Mark I. Turing later turned to mathematical biology, which had long fascinated him.

The imitation game is a series of questions where the user is unable to distinguish a man and a machine

The critique of the new problem is one where the latter question draws a distinction between the intellectual capacities of man’s ability to think.

The specialty resides in how the questions and answers are unable to produce answers that can discern how a man can be revealed. There is no false negative or false positives in either case.

The imitation game is the best strategy for machine in imitating the behavior of man.

The idea behind digital computers may be explained by saying that machiens are intended to carry out any operations done by a human computer. There is an unlimited supply of paper which man does his calculations. This is also known as the desk machine.

The universality of digital computers thereby illustrate the fundamental question of can computers think. The definition of thinking is up to man’s definition, and thereby I would argue if the machine is capable of adhering to man’s definition of thinking than the computer certainly can think.

Lewis Commentary

Those in mathematical science know him as the calculus of infinitesimal calculus.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a calculus of ideas and how does that work. Use of logic in that pursuit of logical computation. Beneath the dignity of excellent men, we are thinking about numerical calculation. A calculus of ideas where we build some computing devices. In the middle of the 17th century, he discovered Pascal’s calculator. It’s an adding machine where the wheels are geared together in a myriad of ways. 0 to 1.

It’s a decimal adding machine, Pascal’s calculator. Leibniz uses repeated addition for multiple times. This creates an effective multiplication. Turning the crank in the opposite direction, which is essentially the first computing machine, the first Martian calculators. These Martian calculators did multiplication by repeated additions. When you press multiply, you could hear the carriage moving.

Full of gears, and full of people who go around with small machines for adjusting these gears. The paper is about something much more dramatic, the optimism and the incomprehensible way anybody could think about the end result being the end of all disputes.k
