Can Computers Be Conscious?

Consciousness is always an “I-consciousness”. This “I” is a “here” as a distinction from a “there”. An “inside” versus an “outside”. And that in turn makes it easy to imagine that this will eventually emerge spontaneously in a neural network. Namely, when a group of internal neurons reflects the state of neurons of the input […]

Aristotle, εἰσαγωγή (Preface to Metaphysics) Things can only differ in quantity. In the quality they can also be similar. The simility theory is based on […]

Three System Laws

In my investigations on cellular automata, I came upon the following effects, which occur very frequently there and which are also responsible for the special fascination with such machines. From this, general statements can be formulated. Context is thus the automaton theory, but the statements also have validity for other forms of optimization calculus and […]

I am convinced, that we will later return to a notion of something what conformes to the aether (αἰθήρ). The door thither are all these […]

What is Similarity ?

For deduplication as well as with Spiking Neural Networks (SNNs), similarity plays a major role. Similarity is mathematically difficult to express. The currently known approaches go in two directions: Distance (metric methods) The Number of matching elements in relation to the total set amount (stochastic methods) Distances What is meant here is mainly the distance […]
