Consciousness qua Mortal Computation

no code implementations6 Mar 2024 Johannes Kleiner

Computational functionalism posits that consciousness is a computation.

Active Inference in String Diagrams: A Categorical Account of Predictive Processing and Free Energy

no code implementations1 Aug 2023 Sean Tull, Johannes Kleiner, Toby St Clere Smithe

We present a categorical formulation of the cognitive frameworks of Predictive Processing and Active Inference, expressed in terms of string diagrams interpreted in a monoidal category with copying and discarding.

If consciousness is dynamically relevant, artificial intelligence isn't conscious

no code implementations11 Apr 2023 Johannes Kleiner, Tim Ludwig

We demonstrate that if consciousness is relevant for the temporal evolution of a system's states--that is, if it is dynamically relevant--then AI systems cannot be conscious.

What is a Mathematical Structure of Conscious Experience?

no code implementations26 Jan 2023 Johannes Kleiner, Tim Ludwig

In consciousness science, several promising approaches have been developed for how to represent conscious experience in terms of mathematical spaces and structures.

The Closure of the Physical, Consciousness and Scientific Practice

no code implementations24 Sep 2021 Johannes Kleiner, Stephan Hartmann

We analyse the implications of the closure of the physical for experiments in the scientific study of consciousness when all the details are considered, especially how measurement results relate to physical events.

Falsification and consciousness

no code implementations7 Apr 2020 Johannes Kleiner, Erik Hoel

This is deeply problematic since the field's reliance on report or behavior to infer conscious experiences implies such independence, so this fragility affects many contemporary theories of consciousness.

The Mathematical Structure of Integrated Information Theory

no code implementations18 Feb 2020 Johannes Kleiner, Sean Tull

Integrated Information Theory is one of the leading models of consciousness.
