Discussion with younger brother of HHDL and D. Meyer on consciousness and computers

David Meyer talks about conscious machines with Tendzin Choegyal:

an intriguing question arose during the meeting concerning the possibility for an evolution of “consciousness” in machines/computers. The younger brother of HHDL, Tendzin Choegyal disagreed with David Meyer’s suggestion that machines will (and have been already) progressively evolve to develop their own form of consciousness. It is an interesting topic of discussion and this conversation was only a small sound bite of a larger debate that occurred.
