RE[5]: Cursing Computer

Member since:

Then frankly I do not know why you reintroduced 'intelligence", seemingly confusing the two notions (again) ;) .

Because it was not clear you were not separating those concepts.

I was not explicitly suggesting that the machine's reponse should be in English, as I hope I have subsequently made clear; I am discussing this subject in a predominantly and implicitly English-language forum, so I think your point, while it has some merit as such, is not entirely derived from the substance of the argument I was making, which is: where's the sense of willed, self-known action?

I was going to go somewhere with it, but I guess I'll get straight to the point:

How would a computer behaving as you would expect a human to do mean it was conscious? Unless you have definitely proven that there is only one kind of consciousness and that we're the ultimate expression of it, you can't claim to be the arbiter of consciousness.

By the way, going back to that particular concept, on what grounds do you think that machines have in actuality achieved intelligence? Don't you mean merely that they have speed and efficiency of calculation on their side? Please explain.

I already have explained. Long before you entered the comments. It started with "Does an individual neuron know of the consciousness of the entire network? Likewise, would an individual human know about the consciousness of the entire internetwork?"
