ASIMO is learning
In meditation, we learn to watch our own minds, to clearly see and comprehend the process of our own thinking. Potentially, we can learn to identify the very thing that we think of as a “self” as being a just a set of processes.
This is a video of the work being done with Honda’s ASIMO robot and artificial intelligence, working toward teaching it about conceptual object identification. It makes me wonder — at what point does artificial intelligence — a set of complicated yet basic processes — begin to evolve into or qualify as “life”?
