I don't know about that. Worms are pretty dumb and machine like if you
observe them and are a computer scientist and think about the logic
involved to emulate that. It's a pretty good experiment but I think in
the end they'll discover that human beings are really just much more
complicated worms. BTW, I just came back from Starbucks where I had a
long discussion about this with a scientist.

There is probably a method now in biological science for altering
genes in these worms to make them smarter in order to make complex
decisions. So, in the end, it could be possible to create an
intelligent machine using smart worm brains, but it would inherently
have the instincts of a worm.
That's something to think about...

Experimenters are digitizing worm brains using them in robots. Maybe
they're learn that most insects are essentially robots or just organic
machines. Then they'll learn that most humans are robots and just
organic machines. And probably that consciousness is just an illusion. :-D
