Have you ever thought of our current technology being advanced enough to create a self thinking android?
Well when science-fiction worlds introduce robots that look and behave like people, sooner or later those worlds' inhabitants confront the question of robot self-awareness. If a machine is built to truly mimic a human, its "brain" must be complex enough not only to process information as ours does, but also to achieve certain types of abstract thinking that make us human.
Well, artificial consciousness (AC), also known as machine consciousness (MC) or synthetic consciousness (Gamez 2008; Reggia 2013), is a field related to artificial intelligence and cognitive robotics.
Thats an interesting fact.
It's also happens that conscious creatures are made out of the five aggregates, or skandhas: matter, sensation, recognition, mental arrangements and cognizance.
I always knew that in Buddhism, sentient being are creatures with awareness, consciousness, or in certain settings life itself.
That's true, but one of the pitfalls for machines getting to be self-aware is that consciousness in people is not characterized enough, which would make it troublesome, if feasible, for software engineers to imitate such a state in algorithms for AI.
oh I know alittle bit about that subject
What are you people talkin about?
Yeah, its a pretty intresting topic and it would be cool if you had any good infomation.
Oh, we were just talking about if our current tech could create a concous A.I. system
Learning is also considered necessary for AC.
Conscious events interact with memory systems in learning, rehearsal, and retrieval. In IDA(Industrial Development Authority), these two memories are implemented computationally using a modified version of Kanerva’s Sparse distributed memory architecture.
Assuming it is possible, robots capable of curiosity, sympathy and everything else that distinguishes humans from machines are still a long way off. The most powerful artificial intelligence algorithms, such as Google’s DeepMind, remain distinctly unselfaware, but developments towards this level of thought processing are already happening.
The scientists define consciousness as the combination of two different ways the brain processes information: Selecting information and making it available for computation, and the self-monitoring of these computations to give a subjective sense of certainty—in other words, self-awareness.
Well, at least its not out of reason to think we can't make a thinking A.I., hopfully the future can hold the technology to make it possible
