The technology is advancing as AIs get better and better. This is simply not consciousness technology.
As they mention, it’s pretty hard to build a technology around something you don’t understand in the first place. We’ve barely taken baby steps into understanding brain function. I believe consciousness technology is a long way off, if ever, but I suspect incredible things will still be possible long before we get there.
Just because humans use common sense to understand something doesn’t necessarily mean a computer will need to do it the same way. It might, be we don’t really know yet. We’re also still at the beginning stages of understanding what we can do with computers. It’s possible that something resembling common sense might emerge from clever sampling of some mega database.
