I'm not so sure of the problem, but I'm pretty sure of the solution. When we can build
AI robots that exhibit (including reporting) intelligent and emotional responses
similar to humans and we can map between their AI and the function of brains in a way
that allows us to reliably adjust the behavior of AI robots and/or humans - then we
will have "solved" the problem, in the practical sense that no one will care about it
in general terms but will discuss it in technical terms the way biologists discuss
protein production and messenger RNA and DNA error correction but no longer discuss
"what is life?".
No this will not work. We must test the physical consequence of the belief that the
brain can be truncated at a finite level.
Sure. Not only will we build AI robots, but we will also use the understanding we develop
to modify brains and cure some mental illness; which will entail learning the proper level
of substitution. But it will all be inferred from behavior and reports and mapping
between AI and brain processes.
