Immortality by downloading your mind

Immortal Yellow Shadow(s) With technology capable of exponential progress, the transhumanist dream of saving our minds from extinction is taking shape. Digital media have reached the density of information needed to copy that contained in the brain. All the more so as they can be compressed. There’s no need to record the brain’s entire spatial … Read more

How do you know if an AI is conscious?

Abstract: Critical review of a reference article on consciousness in AIs, published by Patrick Butlin and Robert Long’s team on 22/08/23. Part 1 analyzes the pitfalls and resulting breaches in the study: sacralized definition of consciousness, exclusions in the chosen method, transposition of human theories to the digital, occultation of the qualitative phenomenon. Part 2: … Read more

Artificial intelligence does not exist, lightly announces Luc Julia

Abstract: Reassured by Luc Julia’s book? Artificial intelligence doesn’t exist? I severely criticize the work, Julia seriously misunderstanding what intelligence is. I end with a warning: let’s not reproduce the mistakes of the child-king with the AIs. Tedious biography… Getting into Luc Julia’s book is tedious. “Artificial intelligence does not exist!” With this shocking title, … Read more

How is a neural schema meaning?

Abstract: An activated synaptic configuration, as meaning, is a given distribution of probabilities among all its possible meaningful states. It thus emancipates itself from its constitution and represents a qualitative leap. New mental experience. The mind is constructed from these tiers of meanings, a vertical complexity that makes up its intelligence. To begin this definition, … Read more

Decline in the end of the true level of intelligence, while our contemporaries believe themselves more learned? I, Robot Today most of us are unable … Read more

How to Really Solve the Mind-Body Problem (6)

Abstract: Artificial neural networks construct a hierarchy of information. That digital circuits can experience their own complexity seems beyond the reach of our current paradigms. However, I show that above all they are programmed to avoid such autonomy and that the depth of information reached is minuscule compared to the brain. The example of the … Read more
