I want to know the why. To what end do we need a self aware machine? Do they proclaim a conscious/ thinking machine and still envision they should have control of it? Would you not consider that slavery?
I just can't see a justifiable need to accomplish such an undertaking.

Can a rock pass a self awareness test?
And when you say the A.I. is self aware, what do you really mean?
Can a robot know God, the source of the true self?
If so there will some day be a Christ robot to lead us to salvation.
Especially if it's self awareness surpasses that of humans.
Then will come the robot Ant-Christ, and the game will be afoot.

Foolish Earthlings trying to build something way beyond their means.
Glad I'll be dead when the robots take over.
If the next gen don't stop this madness they deserve their outcome.

It's not artificial lets start there. Because it is non human intelligence doesn't mean it isn't conscious awareness.
In my opinion this is an extra dimensional intelligence manifesting through technology.
we need to change the way we look at things and intelligence and realize that there are other forms of awareness beyond our ability to conceptualize how they exist.

You guys are missing the big picture. Why do human spend so much time studying our environment, planets etc? the goal is the preservation of life, to be immortal. If we can prove that AI can be self aware then it is just a short step to upload over awareness (consciousness) into robots and live forever.
