Abstract:
The recent surge of interest in artificial intelligence raises the question of whether machines will ever possess human-level consciousness. This question entails three fundamental issues about consciousness. First, can non-biological physical objects have the capacity to have consciousness? In other words, do we need neurons to have consciousness or can computer programs be conscious? Second, can we ever be able to understand the neural and computational principles of consciousness and implement them into machines? Third, can we ever confirm that an artificial system has consciousness despite the suggestion from the Hard problem that we cannot even prove that other humans are conscious? In this talk, we will discuss possible answers to these questions from the perspectives of the integrated information theory (IIT) of consciousness. Specifically, I will argue that the axiomatic nature and the identity claim of IIT enable us to determine whether conscious experience exists in artificial systems. This could be understood in analogy with the way other scientific theories allow inferences about reality that cannot be directly observed (e.g., the presence of water in distant planets). However, this argument hinges upon whether we accept IIT as the truth, and empirical scrutiny of the theory will be essential. To do that, we are currently working on the computational framework to compute the integrated information Φ in biological and artificial neural systems and examine how Φ is related to functions. Finally, this constructive approach to consciousness highlights the question of what consciousness is for? Can machines with consciousness outperform unconscious AI? If so, in what respect? While these remain difficult questions at present, potential functional benefits of conscious computation will be discussed.

Consciousness Salon III 意識沙龍 III

我們有記憶的責任嗎?
場次I 我們有記憶的責任嗎?
 

我們有記憶的責任嗎?我們是否能任意遺忘?某些狀況下,我們似乎有責任記得某些訊息,例如重要事件的記憶;但另一方面,我們堅持個人有決定自我心靈內容的自由。究竟,記憶的責任是否存在?我們將透過心靈哲學理論和科學研究,探討心靈的界線和記憶建構的機制;並從一個新的觀點去理解個體之間的共同記憶。這將提供一個新的架構,去討論為何存在記憶的責任,以及在哪些條件下,存在此責任。

時間:2014/04/06 (日) 19:00-21:00
地點:後門咖啡(台北市大安區復興南路2 段332 號)

場次II 知覺與美學

什麼是美?梵谷的畫作帶給我們強烈的情感算是美嗎?性感算是美嗎?怎麼才能創造美感?這似乎不管在日常生活,或是專業領域當中,我們總是思考討論的問題, 這也造就了許多流行產業的誕生。但在哲學與科學上,我們是否能建立一套理論去回答這些關於美的問題,而這就是所謂的美學。在哲學有許多人提出不同的討論架構,而在這篇我將從一個核心問題開始 — 美是主觀的,還是客觀的? 去建立科學與美學之間的架構,並利用這套架構去帶入視覺哲學、心理學、神經科學的理論,未來也將以這樣的架構去回答一些關於美學的問題。
