AlecAI Ethics

Presentation Notes

  • 3 levels of consciousness
  • Functional awareness/responsiveness - lowest level of consciousness. Responding to stimuli in semi-intelligent ways
  • Subjective experience - the ‘conscious cutoff’. Experiences things subjectively.
    • Good heuristic for consciousness - is it ‘like something’ to be that creature.
  • Self-consciousness - aware of ourself as an agent in the world, we have slef-recognition, meta-cognition. We can reason about our own thinking.
  • Other human specialties - language, brain size, tool usage
