Artificial Tutoring Systems: What Computers Can and Can't Know

Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 16, Number 2, ISSN 0735-6331


Maccia's epistemology of intelligent natural systems implies that computer systems must develop qualitative intelligence before knowledge representation and natural language understanding can be achieved. Emotion and sensation--capabilities which computers do not currently possess are vital to the growth of the mind (Stanley I. Greenspan). Computers in education must be viewed as media through which teachers can convey their messages. (Author/AEF)
