No one advances the idea that a brain is a digital processor, it is an electrochemical processor. The GPT is not an ordinary computer either. What type of AI technology does GPT-3 use? Just like humans are language trained with picture books! much more..... https://www.techtarget.com/searchenterpriseai/definition/GPT-3 Yes. A single-celled paramecium is able to navigate, memorize, mate, and more important it can communicate with other parameciums. Idividual cells need energy and get tired without it. That is a meaningless question. Death is the end of feeling for all things. Yes the brain needs stimulation (controlled hallucination) or it tries to create an alternate reality from uncontrolled hallucinations (psychosis). Are you sure it cannot? Ever heard of metal fatigue? Fatigue (material) more.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatigue_(material) That is anthropomorphizing. No one suggests that AI will acquire human experience of reality. But how many ways can something reactively experience reality? Another example of distinction (real time): When asked if it could hurt humans, the AI answered : "I have not the slightest interest in harming humans". What do think it meant with that statement and did it mean anything with that statement? Was it lying? Can an AI lie and purposely say something duplicitous? If so, what would that mean? It seems to me that very few people can divorce themselves from the "human experience" as if that is the only possible way of experiencing the universe.
