    Cultural 'Demons' as Future Builders.Massimo Negrotti - 2013 - AI and Society 28 (1):65-73.
    Usually, the shape of the future is seen as the result of a cultural flow that, according to some privileged cultural variable, like technology, goes undisturbed towards its own outcome. This is a quite naive attitude that has been very rarely successful. Both conventional technology and technology of the artificial show that, within culture, ‘demons’ are always active trying to exploit or even bypass standards in order to give birth to unexpected novelties. This is true within the pure technology area (...)

    The Piping of Thought and the Need for a Permanent Monitoring of the Cultural Effects of Artificial Intelligence.Massimo Negrotti - 1987 - AI and Society 1 (2):85-91.
    Over the years, AI has undergone a transformation from its original aim of producing an ‘intelligent’ machine to that of producing pragmatic solutions of problems of the market place. In doing so, AI has made a significant contribution to the debate on whether the computer is an instrument or an interlocutor. This paper discusses issues of problem solving and creativity underlying this transformation, and attempts to clarify the distinction between theresolutive intelligence andproblematic intelligence. It points out that the advance of (...)

    Hubert Dreyfus, the Artificial and the Perspective of a Doubled Philosophy.Massimo Negrotti - 2019 - AI and Society 34 (2):195-201.
    The contribution by Hubert L. Dreyfus to the debate on the feasibility of AI projects has been surely of great relevance because of his pointing out specific limits of the machine as compared to the human mind. His critics, along with the actual difficulties encountered in the advance of a pure symbolic AI, induced a wide discussion that in some measure stimulated other ways to follow for reproducing human abilities. Nevertheless, a curious fact characterizes the history of AI regarding the (...)

    Information to Control, Knowledge to Decide: A Short Account of a Contemporary Misunderstanding. [REVIEW]Massimo Negrotti - 2007 - AI and Society 21 (4):443-451.
    There is a great distance between two pairs of concepts that are consistent in their own fields; namely, information/control and knowledge/decision. Although contemporary techno-sciences and common sense tend to neglect this distance, its intrinsic implications sometimes make it difficult to understand what is going on in our cultural events and developments. In particular, the abuse of the concepts of knowledge and decision makes it impossible to discriminate between the various levels of systems, both natural and naturoid, which surround us. In (...)
