In our first ever debate event the AI LA community is excited to bring together computer scientist Steven Schkolne, and neuroscientist Megan Peters, along with host Dylan Morris to discuss machine consciousness.
Consciousness has been a topic of contention for thousands of years even when applied to humans. The notion that machines may already have achieved this lofty milestone is rejected by most, even within the AI community. This group of tenacious thinkers seeks to settle the debate in just one hour.
