    Abstract :

    ABSTRACT - The early works of Church, Fodor, McCarthy, Turing and many others is based on a belief that artificial intelligence (AI) will one day successfully match natural intelligence and may even surpass it. Some of these philosophers and researchers have also claimed that intentionality and consciousness could evolve from the processes of artificial intelligence. The indubitable fact lies in the question- If the brain can be successfully duplicated, then why not its activities? This preposition is not a problem for those who’re convinced that the brain is a computational device and functions by input processing and output delivery. However, for materialists and non – reductive physicists who believe that there is only matter and nothing else, the problem still lies in explaining exactly how scientists plan to duplicate the highly complex brain processes, many of which are still a mystery to neuroscientists. The preposition is even more far – fetched for property dualists who claim there are certain behaviourally – materially – functionally ineliminable and irreducible properties even though these have emerged from matter. If such properties cannot be ontologically reduced to brain events, then consciousness, thought & Meta - cognition emerging from artificial intelligence is impossible.Keywords: Artificial intelligence (AI), property dualists, consciousness
