What do you think of the Hard Problem of Consciousness? Can a human brain possibly be "uploaded" to a computer? In other words, can consciousness itself be created?<quoted text>
Neural networks are a very fascinating study, the biological ones are interesting, but oh so inefficient, considering that our life spans have only recently increased beyond a few decades. The funny thing is how simple the brain actually is, it's not nearly as complex as some people want to believe it is, but it's simplicity is also it's strength, and thus why it's capable of being adaptive. You could actually take a human brain and rewrite the neural network to function exactly like our computers, of course there needs to be a way to keep the brain from degrading on death before that could ever actually happen.
Is Strong AI possible?
I think that's a super fascinating topic. And I think yes, it is possible. Though I'm not a hardcore believer.
