Artificial Consciousness from Self-Consciousness

Posted 17 May 2007 at 16:02 UTC by steve Share This

Christophe Menant writes, "Let me inform you about a submission I just made to AAAI fall 2007 Symposium on AI and Consciousness. Title is Proposal for an Approach to Artificial Consciousness Based on Self-Consciousness (PDF format). It is close to [robots.net] posts made last year on Robot anxiety and consciousness. Feel free to comment." For those not familiar with Menant's research, he proposes that consciousness (in the phenomenal sense) evolved from self-consciousness, which in turn evolved from self-representation. He believes using self-consciousness rather than phenomenal consciousness as a reference model will be a more productive route to developing artificial consciousness. This could also lead to interesting new ideas for robot perception and behavior.
