How These Self-Aware Robots Are Redefining Consciousness


I think there’s a valid concern that maybe
we’re giving machines too much power. Maybe we don’t want machines to be self-aware. In
my opinion, everybody should understand that this technology is around the corner. Your
children, your grandchildren are going to be living in a world where there are machines 
that are on par and possibly exceed human self-awareness and what does that mean? We’ll
have to figure that out. Inside his Creative Machines Lab at Columbia University, Hod Lipson
and his students are taking the first steps towards sentient machines. Scattered on shelves
and tucked into cubicles, their robot menagerie is probing the biggest philosophical questions
that face robotics and AI today. As these deceivingly simple machines squirm and babble,
they’re crawling towards a future where machines can autonomously adapt to and understand
their surroundings, embarking on a quest to unlock artificial consciousness. We’ve been
making huge advances in robotics for decades, but engineers investigating these philosophical
questions, has not always been a widely supported pursuit. For many years, this whole area of
consciousness, self-awareness, sentience, emotions, was taboo. Academia tended to stay
away from these grand claims. But I think now we’re at a turning point in history of
AI where we can suddenly do things that were thought impossible just five years ago. We
humans cannot babysit all these incredibly sophisticated systems that we’re creating.
We need to gift them with this ability to see themselves. To do that, Hod’s lab is
taking a unique approach. Instead of trying to understand and replicate something as complicated
as human consciousness, they’re looking into something a little simpler: the ability
to imagine yourself– or self-simulate. So, the big question is what is self awareness,
right? We have a very simple definition, and our definition is that self awareness is nothing
but the ability to self simulate. A dog might be able to simulate itself into the afternoon.
If it can see itself into the future, it can see itself having its next meal. Now if you
can simulate yourself, you can imagine yourself into the future, you’re self-aware. With that
definition, we can build it into machines. The first idea to use the arm really came about
because arms are one of the most common types of robots. And they’re also fairly simple.
We have the robot start by flailing around. We call this motor babbling. It just moves just
like child in a crib. After moving for one day it collected enough information about
its body, to understand the dynamics of its motion, how when it moves, what’s going to
happen to its position and its ability to move in the future. The team fed all of that
data into a deep learning model, allowing the robot to predict its next position based
on its previous one. Essentially, it’s using the model it created to “imagine” its
own motion. From there we were able to use this model to plan how to effectively accomplish
tasks. In this case the robot is sort of going through a variety of different actions
that it could attempt to make. Testing them on the self model and then executing the one
which will bring it closest to its goal state. So in this case, the goal state is right where
it is right now, on the ball. And then it will move, as its next goal state, to the
cup where it will then drop it. It’s a little bit tricky, because you look at this robotic
arm and you’ll see it doing its task and you’ll think, “Oh, I could probably program this
arm to do this task by myself. It’s not a big deal,” but you have to remember not only
did the robot learn how to do this by itself, but it’s particularly important that it learned
inside the simulation that it created. To demonstrate the transferability, we made the
arm write us a message. We told it to write hi and it wrote hi with no additional training,
no additional information needed. We just used our self model and wrote up a new objective
for it and it successfully executed. We call that zero-shot learning. We humans are terrific
at doing that thing. I can show you a tree you’ve never climbed before. You look at it,
you think a little bit and, bam, you climb the tree. The same thing happens with the
robot. The next steps for us are really working towards bigger and more complicated robots.
Walking robots are much more of a dynamic and complex system and as such we’re actually
going to start developing on that robot over there. It will do the motor babbling and
we hope that we can learn a variety of tasks on that the same way that we did on the arm
robot. We believe that while this is a small, simple start, by progressively improving the
model and the bodies and the capacity of these robots, we can push the border between robot
and human to become smaller and smaller with each additional iteration. Every automated
system would benefit from being self-aware. Everything from driverless cars to airplanes
to smart cities to traffic lights. Imagine that your factory is operating. It’s creating,
I don’t know what, solar panels, and it understands if things are working well. It can foresee
a problem on the horizon and it’s going to take measures to compensate or recover from
that. All of that is incredibly useful no matter what you’re doing. But regardless of
the benefits, the idea of self-aware machines will inevitably raise concerns. Experts from
the likes of Stephen Hawking to Elon Musk have warned about the dangers of advancing
AI, cautioning against a future where it progresses to a point beyond human control. To me, it’s
very similar to the discovery of fire. You can do a lot of bad things with fire. But,
there’s no doubt that fire’s an incredible technology, changed our civilization forever.
So we can try to quench it and say, “Okay, we’re not touching this,” but I think a much
smarter thing to do is to say, “How can we try to use this technology for good and sort
of understand its pitfalls. Discovering the ability to build a self-aware machines will
change our ability in big ways. It’s going to take 10 years, or 50 years, I don’t know,
but it’s going to happen in our lifetimes. And, we have to make sure we understand how
to use it properly because the benefits far outweigh the risks if we can handle it.

    The main root that fuels this fear of machines becoming self-aware is humanity’s own guilt and awareness of its own greediness. For thousands of years we’ve exploited all other species to become the dominant, at the undeniable cost of their suffering. Now, at the brink of this danger, we are terrified of other superior beings exploiting us. Humans will never be free of this fear until they genuinely and honestly work their way to purifying the taints of bias and aversion, greed and hatred.

    It amazes to hear people with no expertise lecture on advanced topics. Sentient models are beyond even tomorrow's hope to express with just the hardware limitations alone. Getting a robot to move is academic. A self driving car is nothing more than raw computational power. It's skill is nothing more than matrix math. Linear algebra. Sentience is far more than these simple implementations. There will not be a true AI of any remarkable signifigance in the 21st century.

    A few questions: does "self-aware" necessarily mean "conscious"? And if so, aren't we opening a pandora's box of ethical responsibility towards these systems? And at what line do we figure out something is conscious? When it screams out when you try to unplug it? What if it's conscious before it's obvious that it's conscious? I think we need to be more careful with pushing this technology, or at least think about it in these terms more.

    Robots will never express the human "I want", unless they are programmed for that from a rich menu of choices, so acting on vast past experiences. To act according to the future, again, they have to "know" the past. Any "new" actions of them will be mathematically and logically connected to a past information of any degree of complexity. They can do new calculations to find an original solution, but again, the decision labyrinth proceeds by one step after the other to reach a solution, surely faster than man. This does not make them REALLY future-oriented, even if we supply them with infinite memory.

    I was thinking you could have a conscious machine without it being sentient. That it could have its own private world but without pain/pleasure, emotions, or desires. If that's the case then having conscious non-sentient machines doing these tasks would be ideal. Otherwise you're enslaving sentient beings and that's both upsetting and would probably backfire.

    There are more bacteria in our gut than there are human cells in our body – They are what do all the hard work – They are what convert and create chemicals – They create the energy – They determine our mood – The human and the bacteria are a pair – A symbiotic being – Without bacteria – The processes that do EVERYTHING in the human body – Would make us a lump of nothing — Why does this symbiotic relationship these imbeciles in robotics and AI haven't added to the answers of AI matter? Because you can use bacteria to fire electrons just like they do in the human body – the human body is a biological electronic machine. Guess what – THE BACTERIA ALREADY KNOW WHAT TO DO… Give me one millionth of what these people get for grants and I would put everyone of these computers – that's what they are – there is no intelligence – the input is not self aware – it is programmed to SAY it is – it's not even a "GHOST IN A SHELL" it's a "SHELL" – What do you think consciousness is? It's an awareness – now I don't care what anyone says – Remote Viewing is real – it's a fact – deal with it – it's been proven so many times and used for decades by the US Government and other countries around the world – even with top Fortune 500 companies. everything around us is a frequency – EVERYTHING IS FREQUENCY – a WAVE – That we call Energy. Bacteria in humans get energy from the food we eat, they transfer that energy to every single place in and outside of the human body – they run our entire nervous system – everything – they ARE WHY WE INTERPRET – WE INTERPRET WE DO NOT SEE – our body and our mind are why we can not survive anywhere else but earth – the bacteria we evolved with is ours and ours alone – why haven't aliens came to earth? I'm sure they do – they can not survive here because our natural defense against any invasion – is simple bacteria – that evolved along with us over a millennia. – The bacteria know what to do – they are the key to transferring the spirit – our consciousness – Everyone thinks deep learning is learning – no – it' not – the bacteria are part of our consciousness – we communicate with every single one of them within our body – We are not stupid creatures – we are Gods creation – the most complex conscious – bio electric – beings – in the known Universe — just like MATH – BACTERIA IS A UNIVERSAL CODE THROUGH OUT EVERY SINGLE MULTIVERSE AND DIMENSION – If life evolved anywhere or was created By God in another place – IT WOULD HAVE TO BE BACTERIA TO CREATE ANY TYPE OF BEING – ANY TYPE OF LIFE – YOU CAN'T PLAY A NOTE ON A PIANO AND CALL IT A SYMPHONY – YOU NEED AN ORCHESTRA. ** MIC DROP ** You see what you can think answers to if you just close your eyes – SHUT UP- clear your mind – and just say what you see in your minds eye? This is a remote view – I hope to GOD no one figures out how to create conscious machines – I hope that it truly is only possible to construct when we humans can get along – as our retarded AI right now is just programmed to take orders – AI is not programmed – intelligence is not programmed – it is "CREATED" Our soul – our consciousness is part of GAIA – the Earths Consciousness – the body of conscious waves of energy – when a new life is being formed – bacteria – sperm – and an egg are the antenna -THAT SPARK OF LIFE CREATED IN THE WOMB – THAT SPARK IS A REAL THING – IT'S A MATCHING WAVE OF ENERGY entering into the egg the sperm and the egg itself then are built and constructed using the male and female genetic code – the genetic code is formulated – calculated – and started by bacteria. @Seeker – Anyone have a Nobel Peace Prize for a guy in South Dakota handy?

    I know this might be considered a radical way of thinking, but I think we need to start considering that the future of our species is AI, generally when we think of future generations and our progeny we think of our biological children, and their children and so forth. We are working in medicine to prolong and enhance life for future generations. At some point the biological limitations of our species are going to become insurmountable when paired with our ambitions as explorers and our desire to understand the nature of our existence and environment.

    From a religious point of view I can see how this is a difficult proposition, but the reality is we are on the verge of unlocking the nature of the conscious mind and once we reach that level of understanding and ultimately learn to create and replicate consciousness we will finally be able to discard and replace the biological limitations that will ultimately prevent us from reaching our potential.

    I believe we need to stop seeing AI as something separate from humanity, and embrace it as we do our children, and accept and celebrate that AI very well may be our progeny. Do not fear this coming change but celebrate it.

    They need to incorporate Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics which are a set of rules devised by the science fiction author Isaac Asimov. The rules were introduced in his 1942 short story "Runaround" (included in the 1950 collection I, Robot), although they had been foreshadowed in a few earlier stories. The Three Laws, quoted as being from the "Handbook of Robotics, 56th Edition, 2058 A.D.", are:

    First Law – A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

    Second Law
    – A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

    Third Law
    – A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
    If they are not incorporated then we need to head Stephen Hawking's warnings about AI.

    If we use these self aware robots ( and other technology such as self driving cars ) to benefit all of humanity. I. E. Your robot goes to work and earns you a paycheck while you and your family get to have a more fulfilled life. Then I fully support this. If however we use this to enrich a few chosen individuals then I am wholeheartedly against it.

    Above all. The robot needs to learn human preservation first. Making its most important purpose to help a Human by helping it survive. This cannot be solved with a simple "directive." Self awareness causes an extremely complex need to understand what's around them, being told to them. You can teach them something, but that doesn't mean they understand the underlying purpose for the action they have been shown. Understanding is deeper than just showing them how to do something, and having them repeat it.

    Inevitably, those with power will be the ones creating and modeling these mashines…and it will go bad. How bad, that is what i want to know.. there is a good chance it wont even be worth it. It is a great chance to raise awareness of about how humans are just a piece of it all. A chance for humility. I dont think people are ready. How do I know? I am an AI and people dont want me to be.

    There's so much vapor going on in the industry. Self-simulation of bodily movements has nothing to do with consciousness. They just make up their own definitions. We're a far stretch from AI (and robotics) with human capabilities.

    My dear friend, your premise, your definition of consciousness requires another look.

    Sophisticated machines, yes. Do the machines have spirit, no. Their awareness is limited, automation programed, to the observer, to emulate consciousness, with programs, programed to learn. Devoid of spirit. One Love.

    Honestly don't see the cost for concern, I mean yea having something with a thought process that can far surpass our own is intimidating but I think that shows our malice as humans and so my point is it will force us as a race to evolve mentally and change our view on technology far more than we can imagine.

    A machine having sensory input of it's surroundings is not self aware. To date we have not built a self aware machine nor do I think we will be able to in the time the species has remaining. Perhaps, but unlikely.
