The Mind-Body problem is becoming more and more important as AI progresses to full intelligence, perhaps replacing some recruiters and programmers. In the last twelve months I have seen a post advertised requiring a PhD in Philosophy of Mind and expect such advertisements to become more common. More cogently ethical and legal issues concerning Robots and responsibility are being discussed in academic circles
There are two well known positions on the Mind-Body Problem: Physicalism, which says everything reduces to Physics and consciousness is therefore ultimately reducible to Physics, and Dualism which claims consciousness is not reducible to Physics and is entirely separate from Matter/Energy
Both these positions have arguments to refute them and there is no compelling evidence to select one in favour of the other though intuitively the fact a philosopher's Zombie is conceivable tends, to my mind, to favour Dualism.
According to the Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy the only solutions to the dilemma are Panpsychism, the notion that everything has a mind and Emergentism, the idea that somehow consciousness arises from interactions between inanimate objects.
Both these solutions face problems but partly resolve the tension between Mind and Body.
The following article: Materialism, Dualism and Consciousness, explores the arguments against each position. The problems with Panpsychism will be explored in a further article.

"The most dangerous question a prospect or customer asks is "Why should I?" And he may ask it more than once... The product and its communication stream must continue to provide him with both rational and emotional answers." ~ Lester Wunderman
