AI may be “slightly conscious”

The Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of OpenAI, one of the leading research labs for artificial intelligence, has suggested that the latest generation of neural networks are large enough to be “slightly conscious”.

Ilya Sutskever has made several major contributions to the field of deep learning. This includes beta testing of GPT-3 prior to its release. In a 2020 paper, he and his team concluded that the language model, featuring 175 billion parameters, “can generate samples of news articles which human evaluators have difficulty distinguishing from articles written by humans.”
