Can an artifiacial intelligence have consciousness?

This is a pretty big deal since man created computers. Scientists managed to understand ( I think they just have an idea ) how brains cells work, so they managed to copy them using modern technology and computers.

Artificial intelligence now evolved to a pretty nice level, where robots are able to learn all by themselves. The road is rough and long, but it leads to a great deal of discoveries that can make our future brighter.

What scientists could not understand is how consciousness works, thus they were not able to implement it into artificial intelligence. The question is: is it possible? Why is the quality of a few animals, among them human creatures, that they have consciousness and they want to understand themselves by understanding their environment?

If we view this from a bit further, it appears like something got a new vessel, a body, and it takes 3-4 years to learn how to control it. Now the brain is in full and precise control of the body since our birth. Why cant we walk than? Because there is something else, a curious thing that has to learn the whole world, walking among them, to control anything.

We should talk about this, we mean about ourselves, since understanding ourselves and our environment is how our consciousness adapts to this world.

Knowing this, we can say that artificial intelligence cannot have consciousness, since not the matter creates consciousness, but consciousness creates matter ( it creates by observing ).

Where microbiology meets quantum physics

The title itself is hard to grasp. So, lets try to simplify it. The world has a huge scale when it comes to size. If we compare the biggest known star with the smallest particle yet discovered, we get such a big scale, that we can only describe it using logarithms (will not deal with logarithms now, the point is that the scale is huuuuuge).

Somewhere on this scale there are living creatures who are formed of smaller parts, like their legs, eyes, etc. Going downwards, we reach elemental building blocks of life (from a biological point of view), like cells, DNA, etc. Somewhere here there is a rift, somehow, because if we go lower, we reach atoms, particles, building blocks of quantum physics.

The real problem is the connection. How can particles that are “not living” gather in forms that build up a dog? What is the secret to this, why it is so hard to understand how these things work? The ones talking about these things are hard to find, probably because even they have questions that are not yet answered.

The human perception based on what we learned in schools is pretty weak to clearly see the connection. But this does not mean that there is no connection, it has to be a connection. The question that pops in our mind is: does this come from smaller sizes, or does it come from our brain? Does our brain make our thoughts, or consciousness makes our brain?

We even get tired asking all these questions, so understanding both fields a bit better, talking about them, would make the matter a more common topic.
