Self-Aware Machines: Creating Artificial Consciousness
The human mind is likely comprised of 2 minds in 1. The first mind observes and deduces meaning from its environment, and the second observes and deduces meaning from what the first mind has drawn. So you essentially have a mind watching the world, and another watching the first (or itself).
How does one create this in machine form?
This is easier said than done, but here’s the idea.
We first create an AI software that deduces meaning and patterns from its environment using the latest and greatest machine learning algorithms. We equip a robot with 2 copies of this software. The first copy will be the “low level AI” that uses the world for its input, and the second will be the “high level AI” that draws its input from the first AI.
In short, once we figure out a way to create real AI, it shouldn’t take too long for us to create real AC (artificial consciousness).
