Grant for Consciousness

According to an article by Alok Jha in The Guardian, “Scientists have been given the biggest ever grant to build a ‘conscious robot’. ” The grant is for 500,000 pounds and it repeats the most persistent — because it’s metaphysical — error (IMHO) in AI: thinking that consciousness consists of an internal representation of the world. In this case: “Mr Holland’s idea is that a conscious robot would have to build up internal models – one for the ‘self’ of the robot and another for the world around it. ”
