Artificial intelligence and consciousness (video interview with professor Peter Århem)

Artificial intelligence trends have some bold and inherent ambitions. Are they too bold, too unrealistic? What do we really know about intelligence and human consciousness, and how does that translate to how close we are to general AI.

I recently met and interviewed professor Peter Århem, Department of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet, to find out. We met at his home and he generously shared his thoughts and reflections on questions like:

  • What is intelligence?
  • What is consciousness and from where does it originate?
  • Reflections on artificial intelligence.
  • Is it possible to build a machine so that consciousness “appears”?
  • Connections between today’s AI-implementations and intelligence?
  • Tips on the road to AI!
