I think we would give them the right to be identified as human after a possible trial of some things that would be impossible with the current technology atleast for a robot to synthesize. But as far as creating sentient robots we'll pretty much only do this up until the point where we realize we can do it. What i mean by this is it will only be for research. it will probably first be accomplished through experiments with massive super computers, and eventually we will minimalize the size down to what a brain is. but i feel like this is when we're going to start mind uploading, not creating sentient robots.

 

Once this is possible, probably after synthetic humans are feasible (which will be controversial), conscience robots will too also be highly controversial, and seen as people by playing God most likely.. I'm all for scientific improvement, but truely sentient robot wont appear like how your saying with an AI randomly gaining conscience and not identifying itself as a robot; i feel like it will be a massive scientific experiemental undertaking, and even after it's perfected the robot will cost millions of dollars (in the future) with all the state of the art software and hardware that it runs on, similarly how airplanes etc. have been around for a very long time and they still cost TONS of money, and will continue to cost alot of money even with future improving technology such as those 'hydrogen-orbit planes'.

But as i said before i think it is then mind uploading will be practiced and I dont see sentient robots as entering every day life, they will be experimented with at top universities and possibly the government, and at that it will be kept in secret as they will probably practice technology such as downloading information and intelligence expansion, and possibly even "multiple conscience" technology (being in sentient control 2+ of beings with one mind)

 

maybe in the far future the technology will be cheap enough for the average person to afford the technology, although maybe not have access to the actual information it would take to build such a robot for yourself. But obviously governments and companies will not be mass producing robots or releasing the ones they made into the general public, so i feel like there would not be a need to have this controversial trial in the first place. maybe in the far far future we could use these robots in order as their sole life purpose to, for example, go and set up a colony on another planet if we honestly can't make a non-sentient robot that could do that and dont want to risk human lives (which is highly improbable), but by then theres a good chance alot of us will be completely non biological anyways lol (EDIT: or atleast our brains would be at that point)

What becomes of man when the things that man can create are greater than man itself?

Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

Yes I would. Not only because I think it's the right thing to do considering, But also because I'd rather avoid ending up like the Quarians in Mass Effect.

what is AI, but exactly that.  Artificial Intelligence.   If you grew a human in a lab, is that an artificial human, and therefore artificial Intelligence.  What about if you just manipulated some cells in the embryo, is that artificial intelligence.  There is going to be a thin line between biological AI, and NI, Natural Intelligence.  I think that at a  point, we will need to drop the Artificial, and just label everything that resembles sentience, as sentient.

No honey, artificial wombs don't make you an AI.

well, at what point would it be artificial.  What if you built an embryo, and grew it in an artificial womb.  What about if you built a new species, never before seen and completely different from any other living species.  What if you made a biological computer and installed intelligence on that.  At what point is it artificial?

Don't we have another thread going on discussing robot rights?

 

I was just about to start restating my whole:
 

- "AIs will not think like us! (unless we work really really hard to make them think like us, in which case they would kill us, so AIs will not think like us). 

-  Stop applying "well if I was an AI I wouldn't like being enslaved" style reasoning, its just wrong!"

Bit in response to some of these posts till I noticed they're all from 2013.
