Matthias Melcher offers an interesting and important perspective on the nature and ethics of AI (and this post should be read in conjunction with Ian O'Byrne's Navigating the "Self" in the Age of AI. He offers a take on such subjects as consciousness, understanding, self and subjectivity in AI systems, and how these (as they must obviously do) have an effect on ethics. A lot of this in informed by and aligns with my own thinking, and a lot of it does not, but it offered me an opportunity to consider and clarify what I would say in response; see this longish thread in Mastodon for my contribution.
