There is a recent article in Nature, Decades-long bet on consciousness ends — and it’s philosopher 1, neuroscientist 0, reporting, in part, on a panel at the 26th annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC) about a bet on consciousness, a quarter century ago.
There is a recent article, The Top 9 AI Chatbot Myths Debunked, where the author wrote, "Chatbots like ChatGPT and Bing Chat may be able to generate human-like responses, but they are far from sentient. This ability is mimicry and not sentience.
There is a recent article in The Guardian, The EU is leading the way on AI laws. The US is still playing catch-up, where the authors stated that, "The European Union has been working on regulation around the issue for a while. In the United States, the regulatory process is just getting started. American lawmakers’ initial moves, several digital rights experts said, did not inspire much confidence. Many of the senators appeared to accept the AI industry’s ambitious predictions as fact and trust its leaders to act in good faith."
There is a recent article, Unraveling the Mystery of Human Consciousness, where it was stated that, "Consciousness makes us capable of experiencing the scent of a rose, the touch of a breeze, the taste of food, the sound of music, and the sight of a sunrise. We also have a unique ability to be aware of our thoughts, emotions, memories, and even of our own awareness. Yet, despite the centrality of consciousness to our human experience, it remains shrouded in mystery. Science, as of today, has no definitive explanation of what consciousness is, how it occurs, or why it exists at all."
There is a recent article on Big Think, Eastern philosophy says there is no “self.” Science agrees, where the author stated that, "the great success story of neuroscience has been in mapping the brain. We can point to the language center, the face processing center, and the center for understanding the emotions of others. Practically every function of the mind has been mapped to the brain with one important exception: the self. Perhaps this is because these other functions are stable and consistent, whereas the story of the self is hopelessly inventive with far less stability than is assumed."
