What we are talking about here, isn't intelligence
, but the cause
of intelligence, which is awareness
. We KNOW we can create machines that can solve problems
. But are those machines actually aware
? Do they actually know
what they are doing
? Or are they like sand
falling from one's hands, which may make lovely patterns on the floor, and may move, but are dead
, and cold
, and devoid
of any intelligence.
To put it another way, can a machine observe?
If we can create a machine that can do that, (not just record) then the rest of the AI is a piece of cake in comparison.
