Over the last five months, we’ve combined a mix of interviews and surveys with some of our most experienced artificial intelligence guests – including computer science PhDs from Stanford, Georgia Tech, and more – as well as some of the most renowned AGI researchers in the world.
We asked 33 AI researchers when they believe (with 90% confidence) that artificial intelligence will be capable of self-aware consciousness. Some of the answers surprised us. To explore the expert opinions, scroll in the interactive graphic below.
Clicking on a date range (example: “2061-2100”) will take you to all of the respondents who guessed that date range as realistic for AI consciousness.
Clicking on an individual researcher will:
- Pull up the complete response from that researcher (1-3 sentences summarizing their position)
- Show the academic credentials and current professional affiliations of that researcher
- Display any related interview links from that researcher, allowing you to glean more of their unique perspective
