Can a Machine Be Conscious? Moving Toward Conscious AI

10:00-11:00 am    Add
Calvin Lab Auditorium

We are on the brink of a scientific understanding of how the brain achieves consciousness. This talk describes neuroscientist Bernard Baars' Global Workspace Model (GWM) of the brain, its implications for understanding consciousness, and a novel computer architecture that it inspires. The model gives insight into the design of machines that truly experience (as opposed to simulate) joy and pain.
