Artificial intelligence engineers are constantly trying to produce a computational model of human consciousness, but they've never gotten closer than a chess program, which processes a series of situational preferences keyed in by humans. Complex, and impressive, yes, but the computer isn't actually "playing" the game. In any case, what if the entire computational enterprise is wrong? What if the nature of consciousness lies in our ability to master skills and navigate complex tasks that require more than computational abilities?
Tao Ruspoli's forthcoming documentary "Being in the World" describes the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, and the continuing relevance of his conception of being to the debate about what it means to be human. As Taylor Carman says in the trailer, what makes us human is that we care something, that something matters to us.
