Although the term “sentience” is usually avoided by major artificial intelligence textbooks and researchers,the term is sometimes used in popular accounts of AI to describe “human level or higher intelligence” (or artificial general intelligence). Many popular accounts of AI confuse sentience with sapience or simply conflate the two concepts. Such use of the term is common in science fiction.
According to the theory of ideasthesia a sentient system has to have the capability to categorize and to create concepts. Empirical evidence suggests that sentience about stimuli is closely related to the process of extracting the meaning of the stimuli. How we understand the stimuli determines how we will experience them.
