Symbolic picture for the article. The link opens the image in a large view.


This project investigates what people think about AI becoming more like humans. We’re surveying a broad range of individuals to understand their opinions, focusing on topics like autonomy, consciousness, ethical, and moral concerns.

Using qualitative insights, we aim to uncover patterns in scientific community. The goal is to understand how scientists will react dealing with a conscious AI.

In simpler terms, we want to know how much scientists consider implications of creating a strong AI, what do they consider an artificial life form, how they feel responsible towards such life, and should such a life form possess rights in the society.
