Saudi Arabia recently granted the status of citizenship to a robot, Sophia. Read this article about Sophia and watch the video below to see her speak to a live audience. Given recent advancements in the development of sophisticated AI, what conditions would be necessary for you to consider such AI to be ‘persons’? If you would not consider them persons under any conditions, explain why you would not. In your answer, include specific reference to one or both of the excerpts from John R. Searle on pgs. 355-356 of our text. How does he view the idea of AI as persons/potential persons?NB: Often in this thread, students write comments such as ‘AI will never be human’ or ‘no, I do not and will not ever consider AI to be human.’ BUT!!! Note that we are discussing whether AI should be considered persons, not humans. Clearly, to be human means to have human DNA etc., so, AI cannot be human. Make sure to focus your comments on the potential personhood of AI. http://www.businessinsider.com/meet-the-first-robot-citizen-sophia-animatronic-humanoid-2017-10/#david-hanson-a-former-disney-imagineer-created-the-robot-with-the-goal-of-helping-the-elderly-who-need-personal-aides-and-the-general-public-at-major-events-or-parks-2
