Really well produced podcast from The Economist, on and consciousness:

I really like the clarity of the discussion here. I feel the media wasn't generally well prepared to report on something like LaMDA, and fell back to the old "he-said, she-said" format. That comes across as "underdog says AI is sentient; big corporation says no", which doesn't help.

But the broader points around the possibility of AI consciousness, and the question of how will we know if/when it happens, are both fascinatingly complex rabbit holes.
