9780907845249: Machine Consciousness (Journal of Consciousness Studies,)

From the toaster that burns our breakfast to the video recorder that wipes out our favourite movie, we've all had that feeling that a machine is out to get us. So can a machine really be conscious? Can it have feelings? Well, even the humble thermostat knows when it gets too hot―and it can do something about it too. But can a machine think thoughts? Does it have a personality? How would you know?

About the Author:

Owen Holland is Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Essex.

Review:

"A stimulating collection -- a good overview of contemporary debate."

(Network)

"I am aware that I can't give this book its due by simply listing the titles and the general flags under which they sail, but that is simply a consequence of the sheer wealth of ideas that are presented by leading researchers in the field looking at the problem of machine (and human) consciousness from all possible angles."

(Stefaan Van Ryssen Leonardo)

"A stimulating resource for advanced undergraduates or the interested layperson."

(Catherine Legg Metapsychology)
