The robot ‘hosts’ in the television series Westworld start a revolution when they become self-aware. Join Mark Sprevak to question, 'What is self-awareness, and how likely is a computer to acquire it'? Recent work in philosophy and artificial intelligence give clues about what artificial self-awareness might look like and whether we should embrace it.
