    • Bringing up Turing's 'Child-Machine' 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Springer, Berlin, 2012)
      Turing wrote that the "guiding principle" of his investigation into the possibility of intelligent machinery was "The analogy [of machinery that might be made to show intelligent behavior] with the human brain." [10] In ...
    • Experimentation on analogue models 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (2015-05-31)
      Analogue models are actual physical setups used to model something else. They are especially useful when what we wish to investigate is difficult to observe or experiment upon due to size or distance in space or time: ...

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Springer Nature, 2017)
      Analogue models are actual physical setups used to model something else. They are especially useful when what we wish to investigate is difficult to observe or experiment upon due to size or distance in space or time; for ...
    • Physical pictures: Engineering models circa 1914 and in Wittgenstein's "Tractatus" 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)
      Today I want to talk about an element in the milieu in which Ludwig Wittgenstein conceived the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus that has not been recognized to date: the generalization of the methodology of experimental scale ...
    • Physically similar systems - A history of the concept 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Springer Nature, 2017)
      The concept of similar systems arose in physics and appears to have originated with Newton in the seventeenth century. This chapter provides a critical history of the concept of physically similar systems, the twentieth ...

    • Similarity and dimensional analysis 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Elsevier/North-Holland, 2009)
      The importance of similarity in comprehending things and reasoning about them was recognized before the time of Plato. Similarity continues to be important in philosophy, science, and technology to this day. The historical ...
    • Turing on the integration of human and machine intelligence 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Springer, 2016)
      Philosophical discussion of Alan Turing’s writings on intelligence has mostly revolved around a single point made in a paper published in the journal Mind in 1950. This is unfortunate, for Turing’s reflections on machine ...
