The Embarrassment of Artificial Minds


There have been many mysteries in science that were eventually explained. Among these mysteries are life and intelligence. Through experimentation, we have been able to demonstrate that life is actually the result of chemical interactions. The investigation of intelligence has followed a similar pattern. We cannot yet completely explain it, but we have demonstrated, at least in part, that intelligence is the result of complex algorithms. Consciousness is still considered to be mysterious. The assertion is often made that since we were able to explain the mysteries of life and intelligence, we should also be able to explain consciousness. However, there is an important distinction.
