The Register Lecture: AI turning on us? Let's talk existential risk



What is "intelligence" in the first place and is it actually reliant on consciousness?

In other words: can something have "intelligence" which does not also have a concept and awareness of itself?

What does that even mean?

Does one spring from the other and, if so, which way around; does consciousness only emerge once a certain threshhold of "intelligence" has been crossed or is consciousness, by definition, a pre-requisite for intelligence.

And so on.
