The robot 'hosts' in the television series Westworld undergo a revolution when they become self-aware. What is self-awareness, and how likely is a computer to acquire it? Recent work in philosophy and artificial intelligence give clues about what artificial self-awareness might look like and whether we should embrace it.
Venue: Regent Lecture Theatre, University of Aberdeen
