What is Consciousness?
My curiosity about consciousness started in the late eighties when I asked myself if it was possible to make a conscious computer. In the early sixties, artificial intelligence (AI) researchers, speculated that soon computers would surpass human intelligence. Despite being much more powerful, today’s computers are not one bit more conscious, than the computers in early sixties.
IN MAY 2019 FEDERICO FAGGIN’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY SILICIO WAS PUBLISHED IN ITALY BY MONDADORI.
