Google: Humans will probably never be able to build self-aware machines

Despite such technological progress, experts say future machines may never acheive self-awareness. “We don’t really understand how consciousness works, we barely know anything at all about this human process,” Greg Corrado, the neuroscientist behind Google’s AI project Google Brain, told EFE on Tuesday. “We will probably never be able to build machines that are self-aware,” he added. After 60 years of research and a decade of significant advances in AI, there are computers capable of understanding basic concepts about the world and engaging in human communication, Corrado explained. These machines, which are being developed by tech companies and prestigious universities, may be able to…
