Towards Implementing Free Will - Bruce Edmonds
The free-will that results is a practical free-will. I contend that if the architecture described was implemented the resulting facility would have the essential properties of our free-will from the point of view of an external observer. Such a facility seems more real to me than many of the versions of free-will discussed in the philosophical literature, because it is driven more by practical concerns and observations of choice and is less driven by an unobtainable wish for universal coherency. are basically three possibilities: free-will is a sort of `magic'; it is an illusion; or it is implementable. I hope to have made the third a little more real.
