Christophe Menant writes, "Just want to let you know that the submission on subject made to AAAI Fall 2007 Symposium on AI and Consciousnesshas been accepted for a poster presentation. An updated version of the position paper is available. The poster makes available a graphic presentation of the scenario describing how evolution can bring a non self-conscious auto-representation up to a conscious self representation. The key item is the identification of the auto-representation of the subject with the representations that the subject has of its conspecifics. The latter bringing to the former the meaning 'existing in the environment'. The auto-representation of the subject becoming 'existing in the environment' builds up the first elements of self-consciousness. This evolutionary scenario is applied to robots. See the poster presentation. Such approach has natural continuations like moral dimensions, relations between self-consciousness and phenomenal consciousness, and also the need for a clarification of the notion of representation as based on a set of meaningful information. This last subject has already been introduced in and in Purpose is to begin addressing the data processing that would be associated to the proposed scenario. Here is the overview page of the AAAI Fall 2007 Symposium and the preliminary program."
