Hardware, Embedded Systems Artificial intelligence is still a long way from delivering the human intelligence in robot form that has long been common in science fiction.

If you are saying "Brains and all computing devices that humans can build will never be the same" then you are wrong.


It has already been done by IBM.

But the OP's point is: Intelligence != (Not equal) Consciousness. Let alone free will. If you don't believe in free will, just think of it that you have choices to be made every now and then and was "conscious" enough of your choices. While AI's cannot think of himself as conscious, though he can be programmed to act as one, it is stupidity to think that he is conscious.

(quasiquote (While allanregistos's cannot think of himself as conscious, though he can be programmed to act as one, it is stupidity to think that he is conscious.))

There, I fixed your statement. The only reason I have for believing that other humans are conscious is that they act conscious. Therefore, if a robot or computer acts conscious, I will assume that it is conscious.

You don't have a free will or conciousness, you're only wired to stupidly think you do ...prove this wrong.

And/or: you were forced into this world without your consent, and the most reliable indicator of your life is when/where/to whom you were born and raised - oh, and if one would want to opt out ...well, that just happens to be a very bad thing under the schema which participated in wiring you, forbidden under the threat of eternal punishment.

(that IBM chip is just an early effort on a looong road of future efforts, nothing "done" about it)
