A Long Term Proposal to Simulate Consciousness in Artificial Life

  • Computers will soon be powerful enough to simulate consciousness. The artificial life community should start to try to understand how consciousness could be simulated. The proposal is to build an artificial life system in which consciousness might be able to evolve. The idea is to develop internet-wide artificial universe in which the agents can evolve. Users play games by defining agents that form communities. The communities have to perform tasks, or compete, or whatever the specific game demands. The demands should be such that agents that are more aware of their universe are more likely to succeed. The agents reproduce and evolve within their user’s machine, but can also sometimes transfer to other machine across the internet. Users will be able to choose the capabilities of their agents from a fixed list, but may also write their own powers for their agents.
