    Isn’t consciousness an emergent phenomenon which has been happening in the realm of social media and big data, so why can it not happen with AI

      Forget about the fact that more than 1/3 of the world's population lives in extreme poverty and have zero impact on selecting leadership. Let's just talk about the civilized population. Most of them might as well be living in the Matrix. Get up, go to school, get a job, go to work, eat dinner, go to bed, rinse and repeat... Never questioning the system or those who run it. I like what Neil says where we need to educate the masses so they can make better decisions regarding electing the right people to lead us. Then of course the problem becomes what are the choices of leadership? Trump was elected because he represented everything that the previous line of politicians were not. The majority was tired of the status quo and ready to try something completely different.

                  the argument for diet on climate change is basically true,but its not how far away has your food been produced, thats a minute factor. its how many resources does it take toproduce and how much land (rainforest) has tobe used for that. thats why beef is pretty bad but butter is the worst (as far as i know). calculated on a per calorie basis we schould eat plants, soy beans and such...

                    Or you could just work out how much CO2 your car produces and those flights you take every year and then suddenly diet becomes a non-problem. :-)

                              How can you say we're living in a simulation wich I believe could be possible but where's the scientific evidence? Same as him a ufo sceptic...very cobtradictive there...the human brain has a tremendous imagination and curiosity by default...same as the other flaws about are brains were subjected to he stated...factoid💯

                                  Ya Neil, truthful science. God's gift is the capacity he gave us to investigate , to help progress our civilisation, not hinder it with scripted illustions we are suppose to beleive. PHD's or just acumulation of knowledge doesn't make a person any wiser in conducting their life's journey but together with "spritual inside" it should balance his moral imperatives to  uphold social harmony ensuring science serves the common good.

                                    There is an entire legion of scientists who can show that the data for global warming, oh sorry climate change, is not a man made issue.

                                            Neil DeGrasse may not be a computer scientist but he has a point using plain logic. We do not understand conscience but we do have a good idea and a good model to simulate it.

                                                If we are a simulation, then there is no evolutionary scale. Choose your poison.

                                                  NDT seems a little overconfident on the AI issue...just sayin Neil, you might want a bit of caution. We’ve created plenty of things similar to other things we don’t quite understand. We’ve also created plenty that we don’t understand what the ramifications will be until it’s too late.

We don't know, but we have it, so it's possible that we introduce consciousness in AI without knowing it or intending to. And yet that would have significant consequences regarding how we deal with AI. As in, do conscious robots have rights, and what are they ?

                                                            Exactly. I usually agree with everything Neil says, but he's knowledge of AI, machine learning and general computing doesn't seem to be great. First of all - we can't tell if an AI (a neural network in Neil's example) has thoughts of destroying humans, so by the time we found out, the AI could've already uploaded itself onto the Internet somehow, and now you have a huge problem. If you just run the AI locally (without an Internet connection), what could happen is the AI could try to mask it's hatred towards humans, and once an external drive is plugged into the computer it runs on, it could copy itself there - though this probably won't be able to happen since, in order for the AI to hate humans, it needs a source of information which would probably the Internet, so for it to develop in that way, it probably needs Internet, which in itself is bad. So AI should be kept very isolated from Internet and external drives, otherwise we could easily lose control over it (not even plugging the computer it runs on would work as Neil suggested) and who knows what happen.

                                                          Neil is kind of mixing up programming an AI there. AI isn't programmed in the traditional sense, it is making decisions you never programmed it to make. it is however doing that in specialized ways ( for example image recognition, or determining which youtube videos to derank ) . This not general intelligence yet, which would be more dangerous, but it's already not without problems in it's current form.

                                                            Food for thought...when you through the dart are you throwing the dart from a stimulated world? When you are looking into this ripple down effect are you looking from reality into stimulation or from stimulation look on to other stimulations? Someone to say life is stimulated, the statement itself by definition would have to come from stimulated mind so why should I believe that then...
