Proposal for an Approach to Artificial Consciousness Based on Self-Consciousness

By Mr C. Menant

Abstract

Current research on artificial consciousness is focused on\ud phenomenal consciousness and on functional consciousness.\ud We propose to shift the focus to self-consciousness in order\ud to open new areas of investigation. We use an existing\ud scenario where self-consciousness is considered as the result of an evolution of representations. Application of the scenario to the possible build up of a conscious robot also introduces questions relative to emotions in robots. Areas of investigation are proposed as a continuation of this approach
