Subhash Kak: ‘It is wrong to assume that consciousness is just a computation’

  • The curriculum needs to move away from rote learning to critical thinking to deal with the AI challenge
  • Each generation needs to reinvent itself and that cannot be done by mimicking other societies

Subhash Kak, who was recently awarded the Padma Shri for science & engineering-technology, says India needs to move from rote learning to critical thinking. Each generation needs to reinvent itself, says the Regents professor emeritus, Oklahoma State University, US, whose research covers the fields of neural networks, cryptography and quantum computing.

Kak, who has written 20 books, including six books of poems, says what sets humans apart from intelligent machines is awareness, and it is “wrong to assume that consciousness is just a computation”.

“My research has led me through various pathways, some of which touch on ancient wisdoms and others on modern science,” writes Kak, who is also a Vedic scholar, in his book The Circle Of Memory: An Autobiography (2016).

Una profesora de Medicina de la estadounidense Universidad de Iowa superó la esclerosis múltiple avanzada que padecía y se suponía incurable modificando simplemente su alimentación y siguiendo un protocolo desarrollado por ella misma basado en la dieta paleolítica. Lo llamativo es que era vegetariana y tuvo que volver a comer carne y pescado para recuperarse. Y es que tras estudiar todo lo que hay publicado sobre esta enfermedad considerada llegó a la conclusión de que puede superarse por completo si el enfermo se asegura de recibir todas las vitaminas, minerales y oligoelementos que el organismo necesita, se potencia el funcionamiento mitocondrial celular y se reparan los daños neuronales.
