Independent decision making and deduction are not yet achieved by AI; and are definitely not described by consciousness.

Though if AI acquires consciousness then it might be easier to get to independent decision making and deduction.


Can we prove humans have independent decision making? Sam Harris, a neuroscientist, doesn't seem to think so. In fact, using fMRIs (or some other brain scanning I forget), scientists can predict the choices people make seconds before they make them.

Deduction, yes, but are we even sure how humans "deduce"? And human "deduction" is scientifically proven to be very error prone. Are we sure we want to judge AC?I by a provably bad intelligence?
