Christof Koch believes that "Consciousness is just brainwide sharing of information that is in the memory buffer." "It is the content of this short-term memory buffer that we become conscious of." "...broadcasting information from this buffer to the rest of the brain is what renders it conscious." (Science, vol. 343, 31 Jan 2014, pg 487)  A blackboard architecture (Blackboard Systems, Iain Craig, Ablex, 1995) would then be a good approach to computer consciousness. (With a rather small blackboard.)  "Deja vu all over again." (see my 29 June 2011 blog)
