Unfortunately, nonthing in that paper tells us how to account for
first-person experience, which is the most irrefutable aspect of our
existence. Psychology has a chance, AI on its current tracks has no chance,
and neither does neuroscience as received; only the addition of an
introspective approach (appreciated by some psychologists over a long time
span of history) will find out what consciousness is; what the first-person
experience is. There is a case to be made that the fields are
complementary; introspection would add important data /explanadums those
other fields are supposed to be providing analysis and explanation of!
