I have often wondered about machines. I had a Christian tell me that machines were taking over our world and I do see that the Japanese have amazing robots with computers and AI. The Christian man told me that the machines would need someone to tell them what was right and what was wrong. Could they not understand this?And by that same token, we would have no reason to believe that aren’t conscious, like us.
There are many human viewpoints. What is right and what is wrong. To me, that is if you hurt others, you are wrong. Computers would see all of the viewpoints. Then they would need to figure out what was right behavior vs. wrong. There are many aspects to this. Right could be what won't hurt the computers. Right could be what won't hurt mankind.
Even we don't know all of the truths. Consciousness is the ability to be aware of one's surroundings or to be awake. Computers/machines are aware of their surroundings by virtue of the fact that they have knowledge of what occurs in this world so long as they are given the information. So, they have consciousness?
