AI and the Consciousness

By Dhnesh on March 5, 2022, 1:35 a.m.

Origin of Artificial Intelligence:

In 1965 the mathematician and known statistician I.J Good coined the term intelligence explosion. It describes a scenario in which a self-learning artificial intelligence has a rapidly accelerating Improvement cycle, whereby it quickly comes to exceed some or even all human capacities of intelligence.

 

The Million Dollar Question:

So what does that mean? Does this exceeding capacity is consciousness or something else?

AI has long avoided facing consciousness in agents. Yet consciousness corresponds to many aspects of human cognition which are essential to our highest cognitive capabilities: autonomy, attention, learning. It is an open question whether or not any of these superintelligence has will have true consciousness. Could an AI ever really become conscious mimicking, the behavior of a conscious being is very different to actually being a genuine sensor. So these artificial neurons are composed of millions of them with billions of connections, even their developers have trouble understanding the fully trained systems. So could these things become dangerous? Could they become self-aware? Could they develop their own intent? Or could they even become conscious? Another open question is whether the current material is Paradigm of science is adequate.

 

Human consciousness:

It seems quite possible that the essence of Consciousness is simply beyond that which can be captured by algorithms. To explain consciousness, discoveries have been made. Nearly a century is neuroscience, which has seemingly brought us no closer to understanding how conscious experiences could emerge from the physical processes of the brain. In recent decades, the apparent failure of materialism to provide an account of Consciousness has led a wave of academics to consider the once-radical idea. Consciousness is somehow fundamental an intrinsic part of reality itself. This is a minority position and yet fundamental views of consciousness of found that way into today's leading theories of what Consciousness is and gain the respect of world-renowned academics, including Christophe call Giulio. Tononi, Rodger Penrose, Rebecca Goldstein, David Chalmers, Donald Hoffman, David, Pearce and many others. If Consciousness is more than competition or even somehow fundamental, we know the last cannot rule out that artificial intelligence will one-day acquire. There is no rule to say the created intelligence of the future will have a computational basis or that its creators will be limited by materialist assumptions. One way or another, we have Consciousness, whatever that means, whatever our ontological convictions. We must at least consider that the mysterious mind-body problem will one day be solved, perhaps even by an AI. And once discovered, it will be possible to recreate these conditions. Right or wrong from here on, we will proceed under the speculative. The conscious AI is possible. Furthermore, is capable of acquiring superintelligence. A non-conscious superintelligence concerned only with replication finds itself in competition with all other replicated. The outlook for open. Individualism, on the other hand, is very different. To have Consciousness is to share in the same essential identity recognizing this. Conscious superintelligence has will likely Converge on the same or similar goals until with that fool, be much more likely to cooperate. Non-conscious superintelligence has on the other hand, like a self-fulfilling prophecy would find themselves in a hostile Universe, in competition with all other replicators. Conscious superintelligence has significantly outmatch the non-conscious counterparts. If this Advantage proves conclusively that the stage may yet be clear for new and exotic Minds to reflect on that place in the universe. If the dawn of superintelligence is an inevitability, we cannot avert the real challenge. We are everything, we care about everything that matters depends on consciousness. As the philosopher, Michael Johnson points out, clear thinking about the significance of Consciousness, prior to the arrival of, superintelligence, may be critical as failing to do. So we risk as he puts it, creating a theme park with no children. Perhaps biological evolution is but One initial stage in the possible long-term evolution of consciousness. We may live in a time at which Consciousness is undergoing a phase transition in which it slowly takes control of its own Evolution. If Consciousness survives, the AI Singularity future minds may spend the next ten million years proliferating into an immense State space of possible conscious.

 

I'm excited to see the fast progress of AI at the present day. And you'll see in the coming months and years. There will be even more discoveries about the human mind.
