    Hey guys,
    Was just wondering if any one could give ideas on how to go about Q9 - Can a machine know. I have a few ideas but..... I'm stuck.
    :confused:

    Please help.
    Thanx

    i think there's a special part talking about machine somewhere in an IB TOK book. anyway, from the prompt, it sounds that you have to analyze whether a machine can really know like a living thing or not. Maybe you can try to compare and contrast a computer with a brain. Or things or apsects that differ a machine from the ability to really know or not to know from anything else.

    i hope it helps

    uhh.. i chose Q4.. much easier! A lot of my friends are going for no.9, which the teacher finds somewhat unwise, but in any case, the advice they've been given is to explore in what ways do machines know, and what they actually know. Like diera23 said, compare to ways that humans know (bringing into this emotions..perception).. prolly not that much help, but it is a tricky question
