Artificial Intelligence, Consciousness and the Self - by Subhash Kak
"Consciousness is not computable. But this does not mean that AI machines will not displace humans from most jobs. And even if machines did not become conscious, there will be increasing tendency on the part of humans to treat them as if they were conscious."
Consciousness “it is impossible to specify what it is, what it does, or why it evolved. Nothing worth reading has been written on it.” Stuart Sutherland, 1989, International Dictionary of Psychology
