A Philosophical Analysis of Different Research Approaches to Computational Thinking (Abstract)

 

Jiang Yi

 

The issue of computational thinking is the key to discussing artificial intelligence, but it has caused many controversies. The key is how we treat the latest scientific achievements represented by computational thinking and artificial intelligence. Computational thinking is based on human thinking, but has evolved into another form of thinking that is different from human thinking. If human thinking ability can be interpreted as abduction and creation, computational thinking can fully realize these abilities. In the relationship between the two, it cannot be justified to say that human thinking is irreplaceable and unbeatable. When discussing computational thinking and artificial intelligence, we need to work with scientists to find possible ways and means to solve problems, rather than setting up various visible and invisible obstacles.
