Artificial Intelligence and Conscious Computers

Byron Reese


Why do so many people disagree on whether AI is good or bad news for humans? Or if automation will create or destroy jobs? Byron Reese maintains it is not that they know different things, but that they believe different things about the nature of self, the mind, and whether or not humans are machines. He doesn't offer his opinions on these questions, rather he poses them to the audience and explores their significance to today's issues.
