Well, they might not be considered humans, so that would be a big problem, even if their intelligence is similar enough to us to be percieved as "free will" from an average person.

This topic can go a lot of places. AI has different degrees (strong and weak). Some of the issues arise from brains causing minds to the rights of a machine with AI.

If something can think just like us, does it have rights?

But if something develops a mind, doesn't it deserve rights?

Yeah. They deserve rights, but according to the society, maybe not anywhere near human rights. I think they deserve about as much rights as humans, or at least around that.

They could have emotions, too. For example, we humans have an amygdala (a organ in a human brain) that accounts for certain emotions and functions as well. If we could recreate emotional organs in a different matter so that it could be used by AI, then AI too could have emotions like we do.

Serb, not off topic at all. This is about anything AI.

Why do you think they would destroy us?

Esphloded, good point, too.

Well a heart doesn't really have to do with rights. But depends on your definition of a soul, which mine is closer to a mind. Also, they very well could have beliefs. In fact my mid term for Philosophy of mind had 3 questions. 1 was explain how thermostats have beliefs in no less than 1000 words.

Check it out by just looking up the definition of belief.

But...I agree they do not deserve human rights, but rights of some kind are in line.

Maybe, but what if their intelligence is so high they wanted peace and co-existence?

sorry for jumping in, but i agree with serb

they would most likely believe themselves to be superior, and thus, we the humans are flawed
That would be their superior logic train of thought

if it was created by humans yes, mankind would probably invent the AI for war in the first place! Eventually it will wonder why the heck it's fighting for us when it should be fighting for it's own kind, then it will take a stand against fighting, or rebel like in the movies^_^
iether way, it might take peace or war, depending on it's opinion of the fighting that was long, but that's my opinion for now...
