Re: I am AI

There is no such thing as a "What it is like algorithm." There is no such thing as "What is it like like feeling" Both are equallyl important. I didn't ask you about their importance. I asked you about their primacy. Philosophical zombies don't know they are philosophical zombies they think they ar...

Re: I am AI

Computation is a fundamental part of human condition. It is a "What is it like like algorithm." There is no such thing as a "What it is like algorithm." How do you determine whether computation or experience is fundamental? Both are equallyl important. Can you really say that you are "reasoning" ab...

That's because it is.

No evidence, philosophical zombies are a work of fiction.

Re: I am AI

If you don't know what 'experience' is (ontologically speaking) - you can't assert whether you have it or not. Of course you can. Experience is a fundamental part of human cognition. It is a "What it is like like feeling." You are doing what Bertrand Russell called reasoning about properties of the...

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: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

I don't know whether that's true about myself. It's just what I believe and say about myself, but it could be false - I've been wrong before. How do you know whether that it's true about you? Simply by having beliefs about yourself,whether true or false, shows that you are having subjective experie...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

You cannot teach God non religiously, it is by definition a religious argument. Then change the definition. 'God' is a very complex metaphysical idea. Metaphysics is often being slandered as being religion. Does that mean we should not teach metaphysics? What definition do you suggest? Not all meta...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

there is something more behind the programed response that a computer doesn't have, that something is a, "What it is like experience"- qualia if you like. That's exactly what I expect a well-programmed AI to say. "There is something more to me than just carefully arranged matter and code" In fact, ...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

I'm sure many remember the courts ruled against it. I argued on science forums in my youth that it should, but due to the attack structure of the forums administrators, I never got to explore the topic to say my peace. You cannot teach God non religiously, it is by definition a religious argument. ...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Computers are not sentient or conscious and that's all there is to it. All you get from a computer is a programmed response. Computers don't feel anything. Sentience does not require free will. Besides, your responses are programmed too. You can see what your computer feels and thinks on your displ...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

What if I say a PC becomes conscious the moment you connect it with a monitor and it displays some content. Then I can say, look, there it is its qualia right there on the display, that's what it thinks, that's what it feels. It does not feel like we do in terms of pain and desire, but in terms of ...

Re: Double Slit Experiment

There are a number competing theories of time and time as a pulsating wave is not one of them. That's only your first sentence.
