The Lost Lectures

Building a conscious robot.

Owen’s Talk is about the Why? How? and Why Now? of conscious robotics. Starting with man-kinds quest to understand oneself (and therefor consciousness) he takes us on a journey from bongo players to octopuses to model worlds and back again, concluding that building consciousness in machines is well within our reach!
