Computers with consciousness: Stanley Kubrick

Computers have as much consciousness as cars or concrete. This will not change. They’re machines.
They can be programmed to follow directions and calculate certain kinds of solutions within those directed parameters. That’s it. That’s the beginning and end of the story.
Why do some technocrats believe computers will gain actual consciousness?
They think a) the brain is a machine that expresses consciousness via information processing, and b) information processing is all the consciousness there is.
To sum up, technocrats are high-IQ idiots.
