Thank you for taking the time to write this article, Joshua, but I have to disagree. I think that advances in machine intelligence combined with improvements in computer architecture will naturally lead to first self aware and then conscious machines. At a certain point these machines will begin to have their own experiences. If you don’t believe me, just stick around long enough and you will see it for yourself!
