Does the machine stand in the corner looking at its shoes, desperately hoping not to be noticed?

Now that right there is a done-in-one.

Once we get SkyNet, it will kill us all just so it doesn't have to hear another unfunny SkyNet joke.

How would we go about actually assembling our self-conscious machine? Applying what we know about Theory of Mind and disconnected modules, the first thing we would build is an awareness program. These are quite simple and already exist in spades.

Simple! It's already been solved!

Lol, no.

Another failed attempt at describing consciousness, but I'll give him this: much stupider than other attempts.

Meh. A.I is easy to prank.

"My CPU is a neural-net processor; a learning computer. But Skynet presets the switch to read-only when we're sent out alone."

"Doesn't want you doing too much thinking, huh?"

My reaction whenever the buzz word, "machine-learning" comes up at work...

"Maybe we should work on data clarity before assuming something else is going to come in and clean up the mess our analysts are allowed to propagate in our data sets?"

Because it's a repurposed sex toy. You don't want your dildo thinking about what it's doing.

If modern AI is conscious then so is a matrix.
/hint: it's not

I've seen the films, but I don't know if Skynet is sentient or not.  It doesn't have to be.  Exterminate could be just a subroutine.

I thought based on that Infocom game you just had to dump all these coming of age moments into it like learning to drive a sky car and its first breakup.

1) A body that responds to stimuli;
2) a method of communication
3) an algorithm that attempts (with little success) to deduce the reasons and motivations for these communications. And then a miracle happens.

FTFY, author.

It wasn't complete junk; he's more or less right about the compartmentalization of function. But he's missed missed one of the major functions (emotion) and he's wrong about the self narrative being mostly wrong, because he left out emotion. To use his own example, you eat a piece of cake anyway when you're already full because it feels good, and your internal self narrative is correct about it. It feels good because that's an evolved emotional response to an environment where food is scarce.
