Towards a Conscious AI: A Computer Architecture inspired by Cognitive Neuroscience

Programm / Abstract:
Thanks to major advances in cognitive neuroscience, we are on the brink of a scientific understanding of how the brain achieves consciousness. This talk will describe cognitive neuroscientist Bernard Baars' Global Workspace Model (GWM) of the brain, its implications for understanding consciousness, and a novel computer architecture that it inspires. The major contribution of this talk lies in the precise formal model of a Conscious Turing Machine (CTM) aka a Conscious AI (CAI) to be presented. This is joint work with Avrim Blum.
