Consciousness as an engineering issue (parts 1 and 2)

Journal of Consciousness Studies 1 (1):192-95 (1994)
Consciousness has been widely regarded as the central arena for the mental solution of problems. A variant view locates the business end of problem solving elsewhere, with conscious intervention only for intermittent monitoring and goal-setting. In this scenario conscious awareness, with `intelligent' processes generally, is largely specialized to the construction and communication of appropriate after-the-event histories and explanations.The first part of the paper traces a long march undertaken by main-stream artificial intelligence basing itself on the first assumption. Disappointment with the result has prompted interest in the second view, which forms the main topic of Part 2 , 1995, pp. 52-66)
