Introduction

Even though neuroscience has made amazing advances, the origin of consciousness in humans — and its nature and processes — still remain largely unknown; the underlying physiological mechanisms of generating conscious beings are still not clearly understood. However, with the advances in brain mapping and neuroscience, we are perhaps much closer to finally understanding the fundamentals of consciousness in humans than ever before.

It is said that what we cannot create we do not understand. While the very nature of human consciousness is difficult to understand, there is an intense effort going on to build a conscious computer mind out of computer chips (now neuromorphic chips). Understandably, there are growing concerns and questions about building a conscious mind using neuromorphic chips when there is so little clarity about the human mind and the very nature of human consciousness.

Now, we can perhaps understand the human brain as a functional computer and compare it with functional computer systems/machines. Now, over the years, we have wondered: to what degree are machines aware of their internal and external surroundings? Are computer systems/machines truly aware? Are self-aware machines already here? The answer to these questions perhaps raises only more questions, as comparing consciousness in functional machines to consciousness in functional humans is more difficult than expected.

Consciousness in machines is commonly understood to be the knowledge or situation of a fact. It seems the properties of consciousness are perhaps not biological. They are functional. The relationship between input, output and the state of the computer system (machine) is a causal relation to the state of a computer system (machine). It is this functionality, ability to know about one’s inner workings and external surroundings that make machines functional, intelligent, aware and conscious.

Although definitions and understanding differ, self-awareness is an evaluative process, involving data gathering and processing skills. Now consciousness in machines may be seen as the awareness of their existence and the world around them: about things like perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts, memories and so on. Since consciousness is in the psychology of awareness, perhaps we can say that machines have awareness.

Machine Awareness

Researchers at Columbia University claim to have built a robot arm that can construct a self-image from scratch–taking a definitive step towards self-awareness. Let us evaluate the reality today. Each computer/machine that is connected to the internet has its identity in the form of an IP address, just like we humans have a home address and digital address. The fact that any machine has knowledge about its ecosystem, IP address, location, etc. is a sign of awareness. From knowledge about location, time, temperature, weather and more, computers/machines have an awareness of their surroundings. As we see, the evolving voice assistants like Siri, Alexa and Google can have simple conversations with humans. The answers we ask digital assistants are responded to in an intelligent manner. That certainly makes a compelling case for machines/computers being self-aware and functional.

Just like humans need to be aware of their emotions and behavior, machines also need to be aware of their behavior. Since consciousness is the awareness of internal and external environments, and since computers and machines are aware of their environment, self-awareness is recognition of that consciousness. Since self-awareness does not require a biological origin, today’s machines can be categorized as self-aware.

Moreover, consciousness is about the ability to think, and self-awareness is about realizing we are thinking. Now, computers/machines also have a better memory than humans because we humans neither always recall everything, nor do we remember all our actions or encounters. That brings us to an important point: since machines have better data gathering and analytical capabilities along with processing power and memory, are machines able to think even better than humans?

Thinking Machines

That brings us to an important point: do machines think? On the other hand, does it simply perform tasks by controlling symbols it has no understanding of? If machines do understand what they are doing and the tasks they are performing, is it called thinking? The answer to these questions depends entirely on how we understand thinking, self-awareness and consciousness in machines. However, since there is no agreed central definition of consciousness for man or machine, it is perhaps time to begin a discussion and agree on a definition to understand and evaluate the fundamentals of consciousness.

Acknowledging this emerging paradigm, Risk Group initiated a much-needed discussion on Machine Consciousness with Prof. John Kontos, a Research Scientist and Professor from the Department of Sciences of Cognition and Thinking (SCT), the University of Athens, Greece on Risk Roundup.

Machine Consciousness

How should we define and understand consciousness in machines? Should it even be understood and compared with human consciousness? As discussed previously, there is no central definition of consciousness. While neuroscience hypothesizes that consciousness in humans is generated by the interoperation of various parts of the brain, in addition to functionality, similar structural interoperation of machines/computer parts can perhaps also be used to hypothesize consciousness in machines.

That brings us to some important questions:

  1. What are the critical regions for consciousness in machines?
  2. What are the mechanisms of consciousness in machines?
  3. What is the function of machine consciousness?
  4. How do we measure consciousness in machines?
  5. Which are the mechanisms by which consciousness is manifested in machines?
  6. Which conditions does a machine need to meet to be labeled as conscious?

What Next?

Since connected machines have some sort of self-awareness, and self-awareness does not require biological origin, can we say that today’s machines are even more self-aware than humans?

Intro

Although neuroscience has actually made remarkable advances, the origin of awareness in people– and its nature and procedures– still stay mainly unidentified; the underlying physiological systems of producing mindful beings are still not plainly comprehended. Nevertheless, with the advances in brain mapping and neuroscience, we are maybe much closer to lastly comprehending the principles of awareness in people than ever in the past.

It is stated that what we can not produce we do not comprehend. While the very nature of human awareness is challenging to comprehend, there is an extreme effort going on to construct a mindful computer system mind out of computer system chips (now neuromorphic chips). Not surprisingly, there are growing issues and concerns about constructing a mindful mind utilizing neuromorphic chips when there is so little clearness about the human mind and the really nature of human awareness.

Now, we can maybe comprehend the human brain as a practical computer system and compare it with practical computer system systems/machines. Now, throughout the years, we have questioned: to what degree are makers knowledgeable about their internal and external environments? Are computer system systems/machines really conscious? Are self-aware makers currently here? The response to these concerns maybe raises just more concerns, as comparing awareness in practical makers to awareness in practical people is harder than anticipated.

(******************** )Awareness(**************** )in makers is frequently comprehended to be the understanding or scenario of a reality. It appears the residential or commercial properties of awareness are maybe not biological. They are practical. The relationship in between input, output and the state of the computer system (maker) is a causal relation to the state of a computer system (maker). It is this performance, capability to learn about one’s inner operations and external environments that make makers practical, smart, conscious and mindful.

Although meanings and comprehending vary, self-awareness is an evaluative procedure, including information event and processing abilities. Now awareness in makers might be viewed as the awareness of their presence and the world around them: about things like understandings, experiences, sensations, ideas, memories and so on. Given that awareness remains in the psychology of awareness, maybe we can state that makers have awareness.

(* )Scientists at Columbia University claim to have actually developed a robotic arm that can build a self-image from scratch– taking a conclusive action towards self-awareness. Let us assess the truth today. Each computer/machine that is linked to the web has its identity in the type of an IP address, similar to we people have a house address and digital address. The reality that any maker has understanding about its community, IP address, place, and so on signifies awareness From understanding about place, time, temperature level, weather condition and more, computers/machines have an awareness of their environments. As we see, the progressing voice assistants like Siri, Alexa and Google can have easy discussions with people. The responses we ask digital assistants are reacted to in a smart way. That definitely makes an engaging case for machines/computers being self-aware and practical.

Much like people require to be knowledgeable about their feelings and habits, makers likewise require to be knowledgeable about their habits. Given that awareness is the awareness of internal and external environments, and because computer systems and makers know their environment, self-awareness is acknowledgment of that awareness. Given that self-awareness does not need a biological origin, today’s makers can be classified as self-aware

Furthermore, awareness has to do with the capability to believe, and self-awareness has to do with recognizing we are believing. Now, computers/machines likewise have a much better memory than people due to the fact that we people neither constantly remember whatever, nor do we keep in mind all our actions or encounters. That brings us to an essential point: because makers have much better information event and analytical abilities together with processing power and memory, are makers able to believe even much better than people?

Believing Makers

That brings us to an essential point: do makers believe? On the other hand, does it just carry out jobs by managing signs it has no understanding of? If makers do comprehend what they are doing and the jobs they are carrying out, is it called believing? The response to these concerns depends totally on how we comprehend believing, self-awareness and awareness in makers. Nevertheless, because there is no concurred main meaning of awareness for guy or maker, it is maybe time to start a conversation and settle on a meaning to comprehend and assess the principles of awareness.

Acknowledging this emerging paradigm, Danger Group started a much-needed conversation on Device Awareness with Prof. John Kontos, a Research Study Researcher and Teacher from the Department of Sciences of Cognition and Thinking (SCT), the University of Athens, Greece on Danger Roundup
