Can machines be conscious?

Although neuroscientists have made amazing progress, the origin of consciousness in humans and its nature and processes still remain largely unknown; the basic physiological mechanisms that make creatures conscious, is still not entirely clear. However, thanks to advances in brain mapping and neurobiology, we may be much closer to the final understanding of the fundamentals of human consciousness than ever before.

Saying that we cannot create what is not understanding. Although the very nature of human consciousness is difficult to understand, we are trying to create a conscious computer mind with a computer chip (neuromorphic chips). It is clear that growing concern and questions about the construction of consciousness with the use of neuromorphic chips — how to create them, when we do not understand the nature of human consciousness.

Intelligent machines

Today, we might imagine the human brain as a functional computer and compare it with functional computer systems/machines. Many years later we wondered: to what extent machines are aware of their internal and external environment? If the computer system/machine aware? Are there machines with consciousness? The answer to these questions, perhaps raises new questions, as to compare consciousness to the functional machines with consciousness in functional people harder than expected.

Consciousness in machines is generally understood as the understanding of a situation or fact. It is believed that the properties of consciousness is not biological — they are functional. The relationship between input, output and state of the computer system (machine) causal connected with the state of the machine. It is this functionality, the ability to know about its internal working and external environment, makes the machine functional, intelligent, aware and conscious.

Although definitions as such, consciousness is an evaluation process that includes the skills of collecting and processing data. Today, consciousness in machines can be seen as awareness of their existence and the surrounding world: awareness of perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts, memories and so on. Perhaps we can say that the machines are aware of their condition.

Native awareness

Scientists from Columbia University claim to have created a robotic arm that can create the image yourself from scratch, making a step towards consciousness. Let’s evaluate the current reality. Each PC/machine connected to the Internet, have identification in the form of an IP address, as well as for us humans, there is a home address and a numeric address. The fact that every machine knows about its ecosystem, IP address, location and so forth, indicates some awareness about my own situation. Thanks to the knowledge about the location, time, temperature, weather, and the rest of the computers/machines get information about their environment. Developing voice assistants like Siri and Google Alexa can maintain simple conversations with people. The answers that we demand of them, are issued in reasonable shape. This may suggests that machines/computers camooweal and functional.

How should people become aware of their emotions and behavior, and the machine must be aware of their behavior. Since consciousness is awareness of external and internal environment, and because computers aware of their environment, self-knowing is the recognition of consciousness. Because the not-knowing requires a biological origin, modern machines can be described as samosvalnye.

Moreover, consciousness is the ability to think and self-knowing — knowing what we think. Computers and machines memory is better than humans because we humans do not remember all, neither action nor meetings. This brings us to an important point: because the machines are in the best position for data collection and analysis, as well as processing power and memory, can machines think better than humans?

Intelligent machines

Here we come to an important point: think of the car? Or they just use the characters that you don’t understand? If the machines understand what they are doing and what tasks are performed, can it be called thinking? The answer to these questions depends entirely on how we understand thinking, self-knowing and consciousness in machines. However, since there is no Central agreed definition of consciousness, human or machine, perhaps it is time to start to discuss and agree on this definition in order to understand and evaluate the basis of consciousness.

Machine consciousness

How should we define and understand consciousness in machines? Whether to understand it and to put next to a human? Because the Central definition of consciousness does not exist. Although neuroscience considers that the human consciousness is produced by the interaction of different parts of the brain, in addition to functionality similar to the structural interaction of machinery parts of same can be considered as the consciousness of machines.

  • And we need to answer important questions:
  • What is the most important region of consciousness in machines?
  • What are the mechanisms of consciousness in machines?
  • What is the function of machine consciousness?
  • How to measure consciousness in machines?
  • What are the mechanisms through which consciousness is manifested in machines?
  • Under what conditions the machine can be described as conscious?
  • Because the machines have a kind of-knowing and not-knowing requires a biological origin, can we say that modern machines are more conscious than humans?

We offer to discuss these issues in our chat in Telegram.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
