Can Artificial Intelligence replicate Human Consciousness?

Posted on 24. March 2017

The debate among neuroscientists, AI engineers and philosophers over one of the most ultimate of scientific questions – the nature of human consciousness – is gaining momentum.

In response to many unanswered questions regarding the future of AI some of today’s top techies and scientists like Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates express concerns over apocalyptic scenarios that are likely to arise as a result of machines with their own consciousness.

Today our will provides the key to differentiate us from machines. However we are also aware of the fact that humans are potentially ‘corruptible’, not just with money but also increased comfort reducing the effort to perform a task.
