No progress whatever with ‘consciousness’…//Would ‘artificial superintelligence’ lead to the end of life on Earth? It’s not a stupid question 

No doubt an important warning, but a review of the history and current state of the art, plus the constant hype factor in AI claims, suggests that AI machines will get better and better at what they do but remain frozen in place with respect to what they can’t do: not just mimic but actually show ‘consciousness’. AI in this sense has never even started. It would seem that ‘consciousness’ is unlikely or impossible in programmatic metal machines, despite the conststant hyping of the Turing Test, whose implications are mostly bogus.
