Robot rights
#8
This was the topic of my paper that I had to present in my "capstone" class in university. As a generalized summation, I argued that the speed at which humans change society is on the order of a generation. Gay rights? A generation and counting. women's rights? two generations and counting. Racial equality? a generation and counting. Compare that to the time scales of computer capability increases ("Moore's Law") and you'll see that giving AI some sort of "human rights" will be kind of silly. By the time AI is afforded the same consideration as a human in society at large, the AI will no longer care. ("Oh, so I'm an honorary cockroach? Gee, thanks.")
Subsequent generations of AI will be dealing with other AI, and not humans.
Smart folks are working day and night to ensure that the first generation of true AI are "friendly" - and that's honestly a more important endeavor.
