- Summary note:
- Is real artificial intelligence possible? If so, what would this say about our seemingly
unique consciousness and our identity as persons? I argue that it is possible for all of human mentality to be described computationally, and this conclusion shows
persons to be “ontological trash,” who possess no persistent self.
