Description

Consciousness Clubについて

Consciousness Club is a Tokyo-based study group founded by Ryota Kanai to encourage transdisciplinary discussions on the neural and computational bases of consciousness. Discussion in this group covers a wide range of topics including philosophy, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, complex systems, computer science, and robotics. Over the past year, meetings have been held weekly in academic institutes such as The University of Tokyo and Earth-Life Science Institute at Tokyo Tech. We are now interested in extending the scope of the audience to facilitate discourse between academia and industry to work towards the development of artificial general intelligence and machine consciousness.

講演内容

"Towards machine consciousness"

Will advanced artificial intelligence become aware and possess subjective feelings? This is an intriguing theme that often appears in science fiction. In this talk, I will present contemporary theoretical frameworks in scientific studies of consciousness and apply them to answer the question of machine consciousness. Specifically, I will target three key questions. First, how can we test whether machine or even other animals have consciousness? Second, how can we implement consciousness into a machine? Third, what is the computational benefit of having consciousness? To answer these questions, I will introduce integrated information theory and other relevant theories of consciousness, and then present our ongoing effort towards creating machine consciousness.
