If Thoughts Define Reality: What About AI?

Posted on 14. June 2024

Based on recent developments of AI and its highly popular ChatGPT, the definition of reality is under scrutiny.

On one side we have philosophy that looks at the relationship between the human mind and reality. On the other side the scientists’ approach is defined by observation and experiments of real-world issues.

Human defined reality versus AI supported virtuality provides the reflection point to judge the usefulness of human thought in solving problems and what criteria we might have to apply to define consciousness.

Historically new technologies have always provided the resources for dealing with the fundamental challenges posed by reality such as the search for shelter or food in a hostile environment.
