  • Does data have a consciousness?

    Data can process information, it can save it, and it can perform operations on a computer; and that bears close resemblance to the thought processing of us humans, but does data have a consciousness?

    How do we prove that something lacks sentience, awareness of its existence? Could it be that we simply lack a common medium to signal our thoughts to one another?

    Data are the "thoughts" and information. A more appropriate question to ask would be do computers/etc. have a consciousness as they are able to store, process and create data.

      What if it was possible to get a copy of your entire consciousness and place it onto a robot, now that robot has all of your thoughts and memories, but in order for it to work your human body would have to die.

      The robot still has all of your memories and thinks the same way as you would. Would it still be you?

          is consciousness limited to living organisms?

                It would, and it would not. You would still have your memories and experience, but your reasoning, speech and actions might change.

                        This is literally the plot of SOMA. Go ahead, play it.

                          A simple answer is no, they dont. Data is just the informations in order for a certain thing to process and will only do that command.

                          Just like how your mindless cell works.

                          I wish I can sing and play like them
                          and I'm just your average friend!
