ABSTRACT
The author discusses the physics of consciousness, focusing on exploration of the theory of physicalism and his beliefs on the states of matter that experience consciousness. Topics include the idea of "perceptronium" and the emergent phenomenon of complex behaviour deriving from many small interactions, integrated information theory (IIT), and the brain's ability to correct errors.

    In eye-tracking research, there is almost always a disparity between a person's actual gaze location and the location recorded by the eye tracker. Disparities that are constant over time are systematic error. In this article, we propose an error correction method that can reliably reduce...

    Motivation: Illumina Sequencing data can provide high coverage of a genome by relatively short (most often 100 bp to 150 bp) reads at a low cost. Even with low (advertised 1%) error rate, 100 × coverage Illumina data on average has an error in some read at every base in the genome. These...
