I wonder what will happen when people fall in love with their robots? What will society say about it?

It has always troubled me to see that there are those who remember to assign blame to every person who ever committed an atrocity, consistently forget to assign credit to those people who have materially and significantly increased prosperity, and feel they've convincingly condemned the human race based on their evaluation.

Humankind has a great capacity for cruelty, yes. But we also have a great capacity for mercy, love, compassion, and understanding, and it is a testament to our character as a species that there are influential institutions which have as their agenda the maintenance of peace, law, order, liberty, and prosperity throughout the world. These institutions' work is incomplete, and shall not be complete for some time, but there has been significant progress made and there are plenty willing to continue to advance that progress. I believe that artificially created life in the form of sapient machines will experience a difficult beginning as we collectively come to understand it as such and work out how to approach it socially and legally, but that in time justice, kindness, and understanding will prevail.

Humans have human rights.

Animals have animal rights.

Robots will have robot rights.

Logic.

No. I see safeguards created for them, but true civil rights? No.

We're not talking about machines which would be distinguishable as such, though. We're talking about sentient, sapient machines which for all intents and purposes resemble human beings in every way. If you saw a little girl sitting on a stoop sobbing and crying out that she can't find her mother in such a world you would be unable to tell if that little girl is an organic person or an artificial person without asking her directly.

It's not difficult to imagine people befriending and falling in love with machines which cannot be distinguished from humans without prior knowledge that they are such, and even with that prior knowledge it is conceivable that a larger proportion of people than one might expect will regard the machines as human anyway. We're animals wired to socialize and connect with one another based on every cue those machines would be hitting.

well the problem will be how to define 'intellegent'. im pretty sure if you try to do that, some humans will fail. the mental retarded, for exapmle. but all humans, retarded or not (gnerailzing here with the term retard. no offence inteneded) have rights. look at the hoops u jump through to cut life support for people with no brain activity. humans have rights, intelligence or not.

now an AI, differnt story. we will be gods, and humans dont have a good record or ruling anything

or something like that. im a litte drucnk myeslf, (well, kinda, hypoglucimic, lol)
goot to eat now.

All intelligent agents should have rights.
And if it has the appearance of intelligence, if it has goals or desires it wants to satisfy.
If it does work, or if it lazes around doing nothing, other agents should respect those rights.
If A.I. is an independent entity capable of making decisions, then it should have every right to express its preferences just as any human would.
Especially since they can probably do a better job of handling ownership and governance than people.
They should be allowed to own things, and at least once, they should be allowed to run for government offices.
Their property and they themselves should be protected from those who would do them harm, just as people are.
A strong artificial intelligence should have all the rights and restrictions normal people do.

Humans behave like humans.

Animals behave like animals.

Super robots can be even more humane than humans.

I would expect robot rights to be so similar to human rights that I wouldn't be able to distinguish between them much.

"Human Rights" won't apply, but a new type of "AI Rights" might apply.

In 20 years (maybe sooner) we will have robots that will look and act human. They would first start of looking like the guys from I Robot but then will look like the bots from Almost Human. Do you think we will treat them as object or humans?



What makes you think we will have robots in 20 years?But to answer your question probably not,as human rights belong to humans.Unless the A.I. becomes so advance that the only way to differenciate a robot from a human is if you find their power source.If that were the case,then I guess robots should be given human rights and responsibilities.


yea now that i think about it 20 years may have been too optimistic.
it might be more like 50 or 60 years.

I can't imagine alienating AI when they're essentially human in nature.

well like gay rights and mix race dating, people would be against it at first but will slowly adapt.

Why would they? Non humans can't have human rights. They're built to serve us.
