Can AI be Conscious?

by Bernard Murphy (*) I found a recent Wired article based on a TED talk on consciousness. The speaker drew a conclusion that consciousness was not something that could ever be captured in a machine and was a unique capability of living creatures (or at least humans). After reading an article on the the TED talk and … Continue reading Can AI be Conscious?

Cyclone V GX Starter kit – HW LED flasher

The first in the projects for the Cyclone V GX Starter kit will be a HW LED flasher. Although the design is very easy, it is a complete design including absolutely all the elements needed to achieve a reliable design with timing closure. For an introduction about the Cyclone V GX Starter kit evaluation board, … Continue reading Cyclone V GX Starter kit – HW LED flasher
