BBC Learning English makes my English "comes to life" because It has a "mind of its own" that I am not taken in by broken English. Thank you full of heart

It's becoming clear that with all the brain and consciousness theories out there, the proof will be in the pudding. By this I mean, can any particular theory be used to create a human adult level conscious machine. My bet is on the late Gerald Edelman's Extended Theory of Neuronal Group Selection. The lead group in robotics based on this theory is the Neurorobotics Lab at UC at Irvine. Dr. Edelman distinguished between primary consciousness, which came first in evolution, and that humans share with other conscious animals, and higher order consciousness, which came to only humans with the acquisition of language. A machine with primary consciousness will probably have to come first.

The thing I find special about the TNGS is the Darwin series of automata created at the Neurosciences Institute by Dr. Edelman and his colleagues in the 1990's and 2000's. These machines perform in the real world, not in a restricted simulated world, and display convincing physical behavior indicative of higher psychological functions necessary for consciousness, such as perceptual categorization, memory, and learning. They are based on realistic models of the parts of the biological brain that the theory claims subserve these functions. The extended TNGS allows for the emergence of consciousness based only on further evolutionary development of the brain areas responsible for these functions, in a parsimonious way. No other research I've encountered is anywhere near as convincing.

I post because on almost every video and article about the brain and consciousness that I encounter, the attitude seems to be that we still know next to nothing about how the brain and consciousness work; that there's lots of data but no unifying theory. I believe the extended TNGS is that theory. My motivation is to keep that theory in front of the public. And obviously, I consider it the route to a truly conscious machine, primary and higher-order.

My advice to people who want to create a conscious machine is to seriously ground themselves in the extended TNGS and the Darwin automata first, and proceed from there, by applying to Jeff Krichmar's lab at UC Irvine, possibly. Dr. Edelman's roadmap to a conscious machine is at

Initially, the party was too boring, which can made me want to leave. However, it totally came to life after my best friend had joined me.

If this AI has got feelings, then it could be controlled, or even forced to do bad things by those who create or control it.Imagine a big company like Google or the government having control over this AI,,,,,,,scarey !!

With all due respect, 5 minutes of doing news review not only is it enough in terms of explaining the expressions, but also not convinceble. I found the explanations sophistacated and want the expression to be explained with stories as it used to be. Once again, thanks BBC English for streaming such good and educational english programs.

Hello to both of you. I am very happy to have you back in the studio. However, I can't help but miss the good old days, when you used to talk face to face, sitting comfortably and telling us funny stories that had nothing to do with the subject. It was really more fun in my opinion and less strict.

Please return the rest 5 minutes of the lesson. I would not mind you sitting down on a sofa in relax way because standing up is not comfortable. On balance it is great that you returned in studio. I always eagerly wait for your program. One downside is it comes out only once a week. Twice per week would be better. I wish you all the best!


15.06.22 в 17:09

I want more of videos in this series.
