"From our perspective, however, artificial intelligence is simply another way to write with the computer. This crucial point has not been appreciated either by the opponents or the enthusiasts for artificial intelligence. The very definition of artificial intelligence turns out to be the ability to write and to read as humans do, and artificial intelligence programs turn out to be hypertexts that create and traverse networks of signs. What makes these programs unusual is their claim of autonomy. They claim to be texts that dispense with the (human) writer and write themselves. The human reader of these artificially intelligent texts is left to play in a writing space that is supposed to be the mind of the machine. Artificial intelligence is the art of programming the computer to "write the mind"."
