Indicators and Criteria of Consciousness in Animals and Intelligent Machines: An Inside-Out Approach

Cyriel M. A. Pennartz, Michele Farisco, Kathinka Evers
2019 Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience  
Instead of proposing criteria that would each define a "hard" threshold for consciousness, we outline six indicators: (i) goal-directed behavior and model-based learning; (ii) anatomic and physiological  ...  Instead of assessing machine consciousness by a brief Turing-type of test, evidence for it may gradually accumulate when we study machines ethologically and across time, considering multiple behaviors  ...  the way humans reach classification, based in part on our abilities for generalization, conceptual learning and selective attention (Schmidhuber, 2015; Lake et al., 2017) .  ...

2021 AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction  
Although IA has not gained momentum until recent years, the idea that machines can amplify human abilities has existed for many decades.  ...  These advances have caused many to fear that machines will surpass human intelligence and dominate humans.  ...  We also thank Dongsong Zhang for his constructive suggestions and Adam LeBrocq for his thoughtful edits and comments.  ...

Explanation in Human-AI Systems: A Literature Meta-Review, Synopsis of Key Ideas and Publications, and Bibliography for Explainable AI [article]

Shane T. Mueller, Robert R. Hoffman, William Clancey, Abigail Emrey, Gary Klein
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The Report encapsulates the history of computer science efforts to create systems that explain and instruct (intelligent tutoring systems and expert systems).  ...  This is an integrative review that address the question, "What makes for a good explanation?" with reference to AI systems. Pertinent literatures are vast. Thus, this review is necessarily selective.  ...  Klein et al. and Johnson et al. build on Clark's (1996) linguistic concept of common ground as a framework for understanding team coordination.  ...

The Now-or-Never bottleneck: A fundamental constraint on language

Morten H. Christiansen, Nick Chater
2015 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
This is "Chunk-and-Pass" processing. Similarly, language learning must also occur in the here and now, which implies that language acquisition is learning to process, rather than inducing, a grammar.  ...  We argue that, to deal with this "Now-or-Never" bottleneck, the brain must compress and recode linguistic input as rapidly as possible.  ...  Commentary/Christiansen & Chater: The Now-or-Never bottleneck: A fundamental constraint on language BEHAVIORAL AND BRAIN SCIENCES, 39 (2016) WM.  ...

Painful intelligence: What AI can tell us about human suffering [article]

Even frustration is fundamentally an error signal that the system uses for learning.  ...  While AI uses machine learning, humans and animals adapt by a combination of evolutionary mechanisms and ordinary learning.  ...  A typical example is bird's feathers, which probably first evolved to keep the birds warm, and only later turned out to be useful for flying. 27 (Zeng et al., 2017; Su et al., 2015; Tan et al., 2017; Guidotti  ...

Why do we remember? The communicative function of episodic memory

2017 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Episodic memory has been analyzed in a number of different ways in both philosophy and psychology, and most controversy has centered on its self-referential, autonoetic character.  ...  Here, we offer a comprehensive characterization of episodic memory in representational terms and propose a novel functional account on this basis.  ...  in Tulving's Behavioral and Brain Science (BBS) article (Tulving 1984) .  ...

Conviction Narrative Theory: A Theory of Choice Under Radical Uncertainty

2022 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Evidence from many areas of the cognitive, behavioral, and social sciences supports this basic model, including lab experiments, interview studies, and econometric analyses.  ...  Whereas most theories of choice assume that people rely on (potentially biased) probabilistic judgments, such theories cannot account for adaptive decision-making when probabilities cannot be assigned.  ...  the members of UCL's Centre for the Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty, for useful comments, encouragement, and discussion.  ...
