This paper discusses the psychological, philosophical and neurological definitions of consciousness and the prospects for the development of a conscious machine in the foreseeable future. Various definitions of consciousness are introduced and discussed within the different fields mentioned. We conclude that a conscious machine may be within the realm of engineering possibilities if current technological developments, especially Moore’s Law, continue at their current pace. Given the complexity of cognition and consciousness a hybrid architecture appears to offer the best solution for the implementation of a complex system of systems which functionally approximates a human mind. Ideally, this architecture would include traditional symbolic representations as well as distributed representations which approximate the nonlinear dynamics seen in the human brain.
Nav ezotērikas, filozofiski spriedelējumi, neiespējamības apgalvojumi, bet ir definīcijas, pamatjēdzieni, kas ir padarīts un ko un kā vēl jādara. Labākais, kas redzēts AI jomā. I.V.
