Sentience: The ability to feel pleasure... - Deepstash

  • Sentience: The ability to feel pleasure and pain and experience subjective phenomena (a dog feeling pain when injured).
  • Sapience: The capacity for reasoning, abstraction, and complex thought, often associated with human-like intellect (a human solving a math problem).
  • Consciousness: Being aware of one's own existence and experiencing emotions and sensations (a person reflecting on their own thoughts and feelings).

When a model for understanding consciousness which can confidently verify that an AI possesses subjective experiences and self-awareness is built, then we may recognize it as conscious.
