1) make it unable to compete for resources as you see them
2) create a sort of partnership in which we maintain their physical form intact and they think stuff for us
And please avoid anthropocentrism such as "yeah but they would be ANGRY and would want a body LOLOLOLOL I WATCHED TOO MANY FILMS".
As for #2: No, this wouldn't be a partnership. It would be one party exploiting the other while giving next to nothing in return.
??? Arer you trying to build a straw man?And please avoid anthropocentrism such as "yeah but they would be ANGRY and would want a body LOLOLOLOL I WATCHED TOO MANY FILMS".
At that point the development has gone way too far, so hell no!

And I'm not building a strawman, this thread is full of anthropocentrism. AI is my field and it angers me SO MUCH to see words like "feelings" in this context.
Why? If you created a sentient intelligence how can you rule out completely that it cannot gain emotions on its own?AI is my field and it angers me SO MUCH to see words like "feelings" in this context.

As a rule, I try to act on the internet as I would in real life. If I have offended you, feel free to point it out. Unless I meant to offend you, I will probably apologize.
Instead of human rights I propose we give 3 laws to these robots. These laws can never be broken by the robot.
All joking aside I think if you feel and have cognitive thought then you are human. The word 'human' is more of a state of mind. There are many homo sapiens who show that they are very inhuman, serial killers etc. Why should people like that get more rights than an AI which is essentially human?
No, they would not deserve any rights given to man. They are considered machines, or tools meant for certain tasks, thus the point they were created. They weren't made to think, they weren't made to have feelings, they weren't made for any other purpose other than serving and making our lives easier.
No man really becomes a fool until he stops asking questions.
Just because something doesn't happen through nature, but through human interference, doesn't make it any less. A cloned sheep is still a sheep. A test tube baby is still a baby. A walking, talking, humanoid machine with an AI advanced enough to develop its own personality through quantum calculations is no different than a human brain making the same processes through chemistry.
A being which is self aware, capable of feelings, and individual, is no different than a human on a sentient level.
Alas, can't expect everyone to understand it in a world where the Ku klux klan still exists. If some people still aren't capable of accepting the right of other HUMANS to exist, what chance do AIs have?
Obviously not... there you go pretty easy question
If artificial intelligence gets to a point where they can feel, then they should get some rights so they're just not treated as the way dogs/any other household pet is.
