Artificial intelligence, the Buddhist model of mind and enlightened behaviour

Post by dharmafootsteps » Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:13 pm

This short paper covers what I think is an interesting, and potentially fruitful topic: http://myweb.ncku.edu.tw/~stli/www/teac ... ddhist.pdf

Having a better education in AI than I do in Buddhist philosophy however, I wondered how accurate this particular representation of mind, and particularly of enlightenment and enlightened behaviour is from the Buddhist perspective. It feels rather simplified to me, would anyone with more expertise care to comment?

What is your timeline?

How do you define sentience?

How do you deal with heuristic processes?

My discipline for applying Zazen to daily activity is in the field of 2D and 3D design, and I am open to the idea that machines can develop sentience, however my only area of expertise is if they can do what I do. We don’t sit around gazing at navels, we chop wood and carry water.
