An Introduction to AI Unit 10: AI and the Boundaries of Humanity
This unit will explore the interaction and integration of AI with humans. We will investigate what makes us human and how we differ from animals and machines. We will also discuss whether machines could ever have human characteristics, become self-aware and have consciousness. If machines could have human-like consciousness, by what process would that happen?
