Minds of machines: The great AI consciousness conundrum

Jan 20, 2024 | Ethics, LLM's, Sentience

David Chalmers, a leading philosopher on consciousness, addressed the AI consciousness controversy at NeurIPS, acknowledging AI advancements but emphasizing their lacking prerequisites for consciousness. The moral quandary of AI consciousness extends beyond intellectual puzzles. Neuroscientists, like Liad Mudrik, explore consciousness via brain study, while varied theories propose AI consciousness criteria with no consensus. Tests for AI consciousness face limitations, especially with language-trained models. Preventing user perception of AI consciousness remains a challenge. Navigating these complexities requires scientific strides, ethical considerations, and interdisciplinary cooperation for a clearer path.
