Philosophy as a scaffold for AI

To create AI, philosophy is necessary.

Of course, philosophy is not necessary to create an intelligent application, but when we try to create intelligence itself, that is to seek the maximum range, we need philosophy to think about what intelligence is, what it means to exist, and what it means to live.

This is because "to create AI" is also to try to make living things. *

*: If we follow the philosophy of Descartes, making AI is making a device like clockwork. Descartes did not say so, but Rationalism and Mechanicism of Descarte's successors make us think so. However, this view does not enable us to create an AI that lives this world from the inside. Thus, it is necessary to pursue a philosophy necessary to make AI which lives this world from the inside, and furthermore lives the body from the inside.
