There is a recent article in Quanta Magazine, What a Contest of Consciousness Theories Really Proved, stating that “A further complication was that the experimental results depended on the type of brain recording technique used. That’s not surprising since each technology provides a different lens into the brain. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), for instance, tracks blood flow and offers good spatial resolution but is too sluggish to keep up with the pace of chatter among the neurons. Magnetoencephalography (MEG), on the other hand, tracks brain chatter but has poorer spatial resolution. It also makes a difference whether researchers are measuring signal strength in specific locations of the brain or analyzing patterns over wider areas.”
There is a fresh preprint on arXiv,Consciousness in Artificial Intelligence: Insights from the Science of Consciousness, stating that "in addition to agency and embodiment, a further possible necessary condition for consciousness is that conscious systems must be self-producing, self-maintaining, “autopoietic” systems.
There is a recent news in Nature, ChatGPT-like AIs are Coming to Major Science Search Engines, stating that, "On 1 August, Dutch publishing giant Elsevier released a ChatGPT-like artificial-intelligence (AI) interface for some users of its Scopus database, and British firm Digital Science announced a closed trial of an AI large language model (LLM) assistant for its Dimensions database.
There is a new nickname for LLMs, glorified tape recorder.
There is a recent article in FT, The Rise of AI Forces us to Reinterpret our Human Intelligence, where the author wrote, "When I was growing up it was simple. There was “intelligence” and human beings had a high, medium or low quotient: hence the IQ test.
