John Searle's Consciousness Speech Compares Robots to People
Searle explains that if one believes that they are conscious then they must be conscious. He says that from the time someone wakes up to the time that they go to sleep they are conscious. He says that man has yet to create a robot that has consciousness and predicts that this is a limitation in terms of artificial intelligence that scientists won't solve.
Searle believes that studying human consciousness is extremely important and worth while, despite the fact that not many people take the time to really examine it.
