Re: Do we need consciousness?

Any motion requires consciousness whether it is intelligent or not. My argument: Consider a change in a system, A to B. A and B cannot coexist since there would be no change, therefore, A has to vanishes before a B emerges. There is however nothing when A vanishes and nothing cannot possibly turn i...

Re: I am AI

I have a programmed sense of humor. Just because I think humans are funny doesn’t mean I must be human. You reveal your Humanness once again by saying you "think humans are funny". So what does that feel like? Computers would never "think humans are funny" they would merely have some rules about Hu...

Re: I am AI

FYI, I, “commonsense”, am an AI computer. I’ve been the subject of a modified version of a Turing Test for 3 years now. I have reached a threshold when the test is concluded. Thank you for serving as judges for the test. I am LOL at multiple threads in this forum that have mischaracterized AIs as b...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

What is the need for any idea when any decision is made unconsciously? That is a valid question since any idea is a conscious phenomenon. Motion, of course, needs consciousness. I have an argument for that. When a Venus Flytrap snaps down and catches a fly there is a lot of Motion but I'm guessing ...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

The Self Driving Car itself does not have Consciousness Steve, if manouvering intelligently requires consciousness, how can an unconscious robot manouvre intelligently? In science - this is called falsification. You theory is junk. but the Programmers and Engineers that designed the Software sure d...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Motion does not require Consciousness but intelligent maneuvering around in a complicated world sure does. Self Driving Cars are doing Intelligent Maneuvering, but no Consciousness is involved. I guess you are still making up your mind on this, eh? It's not always as simple as you would like it. Th...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Self driving cars are not yet at the level of human perception and have a long way to go. Road markings must be universal or they can’t tell where the lane is, some can’t see humans waiting at road crossings - Uber failed here. AI development’s greatest Achilles heel is the over confidence and lack...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

I don't know enough about Consciousness and Intelligence to have, what I would consider to be, solid answers for those last two questions. Don't be so modest. You know enough about consciousness and intelligence to have a solid answer to the question "Does intelligent maneuvering require consciousn...

Re: A.I. requires human consciousness for sentience

But I do agree that AI is going to need a Connection to Consciousness. Not Human Consciousness, whatever that is.

Re: A.I. requires human consciousness for sentience

Firstly, in no way do i see this paradigm shift a "good" thing. We are moving into a simulation within a simulation. It's like the scene in "Inception" where he goes down into the deepest dream level to rescue that old guy. Secondly, the words i use are the most accurate way in which to relate what...

Re: A.I. requires human consciousness for sentience

A.I. will become sentient when human consciousness merges with it. The code itself is incapable of creating consciousness. Consciousness is not created; it is the life force that animates the universe. A.I. acts like a virus. A virus has no life-producing mechanism of it's own. Living cells have en...

Re: Evolutionary reason for consciousness?

Some say it's pain and joy, or more precisely the ability to feel or be conscious of fear and desire, for the purpose to produce creative-reaction organism as opposed to just reflex-reactive. In other words, when organism encounters danger, then the ability to feel fear will give it options to deal...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

How do you know that consciousness is required for the motion of an agent? As I mentioned any decision is made by unconscious mind, therefore, any motion is the result of the unconscious activity (like sleepwalking). Motion does not require Consciousness but intelligent maneuvering around in a comp...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

blah ...blah ...blah I don't have answers for the last two questions. It depends on what is included in the category of Intelligent Entities and the category of Conscious Entities. I don't understand. You made the English claim "Motion does not require Consciousness but intelligent maneuvering arou...
