The following fundamental issues of artificial minds and conscious machines are considered here: representation and symbolic processing of information with meaning and significance in the human sense; the perception process; a neural cognitive architecture; system reactions and emotions; consciousness in the machine; and artificial minds as a content-level phenomenon. Solutions are proposed for related problems, and a cognitive machine is outlined. An artificial mind within this machine that eventually controls the machine is seen to arise via learning and experience as higher level content is constructed.
