Two computing experts argue about the limits of Artificial Intelligence in a streaming debate hosted by MIT World. Inventor and electronics pioneer Ray Kurzweil defends his opinion that in the near future, the technology will advance far enough for humans to model the brain digitally and maybe even crack the mystery of human consciousness. Taking the opposing view, computer scientist David Gelernter argues that even after man has managed to create an artificial copy of the brain's complex biological machinery, it doesn't mean that this man-made brain will be "conscious" in the way human beings understand each other to be. The debate escalates from there, with intriguing questions posed on our current understanding of consciousness, what the brain's chemical makeup contributes, and what this might all lead to when we begin to integrate our physical bodies with artificial augmentation.
