Imagine the applications and implications of robotics and artificial intelligence in 2045

ethics and morality of RObotics

Describe your idea

At what point does an AI cease to be a 'product' and be called instead a 'being' with all the rights given to us 'normal' humans? Would not a sufficiently advanced AI be given the same rights as humans?

Why is this necessarily true? Is it intelligence or biological life that engenders individual rights? Seems like it is a combination. The court cases will be no-doubt fascinating to watch. Hope I am alive to see it.

If an AI is smart enough, then why would it do what you want, if what you want is counter to the AI's opinion of what is best for it? At some point the fact of it being 'biological' (why can't a robot be biologically based? created in a lab?) will be of no importance as the AI in question will have thoughts of its own and want to do what it wants to do, you know, like a human does. As a former soldier, I can say that soldiers every day make decisions that are detrimental to themselves but (in their minds) good for their society, would an AI do the same? In the same situations? When an AI has thoughts and feelings, when does it become considered the same as you or I?
