Just add: Attention schema. Get published.
Case you wondered. From Aeon:
Artificial intelligence is growing more intelligent every year, but we’ve never given our machines consciousness. People once thought that if you made a computer complicated enough it would just sort of ‘wake up’ on its own. But that hasn’t panned out (so far as anyone knows). Apparently, the vital spark has to be deliberately designed into the machine. And so the race is on to figure out what exactly consciousness is and how to build it.
I’ve made my own entry into that race, a framework for understanding consciousness called the Attention Schema theory.
Would we give up naturalism to solve the hard problem of consciousness?
