I first heard about AI in 1969 from Max Clowes, then an AI vision researcher, when I was a philosophy lecturer at Sussex University (with a background in mathematics and physics). Gradually I came to realise that the best way to make progress in most areas of philosophy (e.g. philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, philosophy of mathematics, and probably even aesthetics) was to do AI.
