I just love learning about biology as it relates to technology. This video repays watching.

    Not sure if AI (self-awareness) will ever be attained or whether the Turing test or any other will be able to detect it. AI seems to be fundamentally evasive, but people are capable of amazing discoveries. Who before, say, 1800, would have thought that such a thing as radio would even be possible?

    In my view, the path to AI from a “software” perspective is in pattern recognition. This would require high-speed or network/parallel processing to analyze empirical data on many “levels” simultaneously in order to detect and refine patterns. Patterns can exist in time, in space, through light and sound, etc., and at various levels of granularity.
