The Terminator movie will frighten us; WALL-E movie will make us cry. Robots can’t do the heartbreaking things we see in movies. The technology we have today isn’t anywhere. But people are asking. Among those discussions, there lie some questions. can machines become conscious? Could they developed or programmed to contain a soul? Could an algorithm contain resembling a soul? The answers depend on how you define the things.
Artificial intelligence has emerged as an academic pursuit. For example, BBC tried to grapple the idea of artificial intelligence with a soul. Could artificial intelligence ever be more than a mindless tool? That BBC article stated an Artificial intelligence system acts as it has a soul. A sufficiently-advanced algorithm a soul. People treat it as they view the AI system’s intelligence, emotional expression, behavior, as a belief in god signs. They treat it as a soul. As a result, machines with artificial intelligence seen as an entity or a research tool.
Nancy Fulda, a computer scientist at Brigham Young University told: “I’m less interested in programming computers than in nurturing little proto-entities, It’s the discovery of patterns, the emergence of unique behaviors, that first drew me to computer science.
IT is the reason that I’m still here.” Fulda has trained AI algorithms to understand contextual language. It is working to build a robotic theory of mind. It is a principle in human psychology. This will recognize others as beings with their own thoughts and intentions. But, you know, for robots. There are two main problems that need to resolve. The first one is semantics. The second problem is technological advancement.
Compared to the technology, most of the advanced engineers are huddled in caves, rubbing sticks together to make a fire and cook some woolly mammoth steaks. The conversation bounced between speculative experiments regarding machines and zombies. Chalmers argued that a machine could become conscious. This incorporates our senses, how we perceive the world and our actions.
Neuroscientists struggled to define why we are conscious and how best to define it in terms of neural activity. “AI people are routinely confusing soul with the mind. We say that someone’s soul is noble or depraved,” Beran added with a value judgment. Beran gave the example of art generated by artificial intelligence. These works are presented for fun.
When an algorithm creates “art,” we fail to consider whether the algorithm is generated the sort of image or created something meaningful. Of course, human-created art failed to reach the second group. “It is very unclear that something has significance for an artificial intelligence,” Beran added. So would a machine achieve sentience or not? Is it able to internally ponder into mindlessly stir the inputs and outputs? Would it truly need something before the machines considered to be conscious?
