This paper, initiated by a discussion about the philosophical problems of the “Black Mirror” series, examines whether artificial intelligence might be considered conscious. For a possible answer, we view Rene Descartes' concept of ‘I' and Arthur Schopenhauer's idea of the world as the will and representation. Along with it, we also refer to contemporary views from psychology and neuropsychology. In addition, we distinguish and attempt to describe some key concepts related to human behavior, such as subject, subjectness, and consciousness, which in the sequel might be used to describe non-human activities.
