State-of-the-Art of Artificial Intelligence. Will Human-like “Consciousness” Be ever Achievable by Robots?

State-of-the-Art of Artificial Intelligence. Will Human-like “Consciousness” Be ever Achievable by Robots?

Is Consciousness 'just' an attribute of our brain's neural network activity or an interplay of neural network with 'substrates' of consciousness and the reality/world models and their perception? Consider the possibility of a future intelligent system having an artificial brain with trillions of interconnecting neural nets equally simulating our own brain and armed with perhaps millions of algorithms possible thanks to an even more accurate neuroscience neuro mapping of the human brain and its functioning. Can we consider that a conscious artificial human entity? A number of scientists are looking at the development…continue reading →
Artificial Intelligence: Does Consciousness Matter?

Artificial Intelligence: Does Consciousness Matter?

Consciousness plays an important role in debates around the mind-body problem, the controversy over strong vs. weak artificial intelligence (AI), and bioethics. Strikingly, however, it is not prominent in current debates on ethical aspects of AI and robotics. This text explores this lack and makes two claims: We need to talk more about artificial consciousness and we need to talk more about the lack of consciousness in current robots and AI. Can Machines Have Consciousness? The question of whether machines can have consciousness is not new, with proponents of strong artificial intelligence (strong…continue reading →
We are All  Connected to our Planet Earth and Everything in the Universe

We are All Connected to our Planet Earth and Everything in the Universe

We are All Involved in a Silent and Slow Evolution. Connected to our Planet Earth and Everything in the Universe.We are all connected to everyone and everything in the universe. Therefore, everything one does as an individual affects the whole. All our existences, thoughts, words, prayers, blessings, and deeds are listened to by all that is. It seems a matter of faith, but it isn't. It is our nature of living beings on our planet earth. To rise our vibration, choosing carefully our thoughts and emotions, is becoming an ”environmental responsability” and an…continue reading →
