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.
