Turing Tests for Morality & Intimacy, Moral Enhancement & Digital Moral Assistants
James Hughes   Jun 20, 2014   Adam Ford  

James Hughes Ph.D., the Executive Director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, and IEET contributor Adam Ford talk about AI mentality, ethics, consciousness, intelligence, morals, and what it means to pass the Turing Test, even if it is all BS (concerning the Turing test that is).

James Hughes Ph.D., the Executive Director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, is a bioethicist and sociologist at Trinity College in Hartford Connecticut where he teaches health policy and serves as Director of Institutional Research and Planning. He holds a doctorate in sociology from the University of Chicago, where he also taught bioethics at the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics. Dr. Hughes is author of Citizen Cyborg: Why Democratic Societies Must Respond to the Redesigned Human of the Future , and is working on a second book tentatively titled Cyborg Buddha. From 1999-2011 he produced a syndicated weekly radio program, Changesurfer Radio.

He is a Fellow of the World Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a member of Humanity+, the Neuroethics Society, the American Society of Bioethics and Humanities and the Working Group on Ethics and Technology at Yale University.

​Test validity - a test for things that can't be measured directly - like 'consciousness' an inter-subjective experience. We can correlate what we know our own and other peoples consciousness.
