Synopsis

For many decades, the proponents of 'artificial intelligence' have maintained that computers will soon be able to do everything that a human can do. In his bestselling work of popular science, Sir Roger Penrose takes us on a fascinating roller-coaster ride through the basic principles of physics, cosmology, mathematics, and philosophy to show that human thinking can never be emulated by a machine.

Sir Roger Penrose is Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at Oxford. He is the recipient of many awards and prizes, including the 1988 Wolf Prize for Physics which he shared with Stephen Hawking for their joint contribution to our understanding of the universe. His other books are Spinors and Space Time: Vol 1: Two-Spinor Calculus and Relativistic Fields (CUP, 1987); Vol 2: Spinor and Twistor Methods in Space-Time Geometry (both with Wolfgang Rindler, CUP, 1986), Shadows of the Mind (OUP, 1994), The Nature of Space and Time (with Stephen Hawking, Princeton University Press, 1996), and The Large, the Small and the Human Mind (CUP, 1997).
