At some point we are going to develop something that looks like and acts
like it is conscious and at least intelligent as we are. Let's assume it
will pass all the tests and we have created an artificial intelligence.
Should this AI have civil rights? Should it be able to vote and own
I can see that we can get into a lot of discussion over what is meant by
consciousness and artificial intelligence, as well as what is meant by civil
(I reject your reality and substitute my own)
