Consciousness is no longer regarded as a problem in the PD AI of
http://www.geocities.com/mentifex/mind4th.html because we expect
the emergence of an epiphenomenon:  The robot is aware of itself.

First the sensing of self, then the naming and conceptualization
of self, will create a vortex or mindstorm of associations which
as the illusion of consciousness will actually BE consciousness.

Meanwhile philosophers meet every two years in Tucson AZ USA for
"Toward a Science of Consciousness" to be held 10-15 April 2000.
