  • Federico Faggin on The Nature of Consciousness

    “One day, robots will control the world” – “humans are the most complex machines on earth” – “robots can solve the most intricate problems in a better and more efficient way than men”. How many times have we heard those words, and how frustrating has it been the face to face (or face to monitor) with a computer with the awareness that the dispute had a designated winner since the beginning?
