Vitalik Buterin posted a tweet about Neural Networks as philosophy:

And he further stated:

But my opinion is that human being is more complex than what computers can actually perform:

Can computers mimic human consciousness?

The short answer is “NOPE”!

Human consciousness is more complex than a deterministic system can describe.

Mind-Body problem

We, humans, judge people according to what they look rather than what they truly are.

The computer needs input to generate output. Those inputs are what describe who you are — your data and develop through a process of algorithm humans build to determine who they categorize to be — you.

Are you a body with a mind or a mind with a body?
