I agree with Dennet - whats the point? Would we want our AIs to be motivated
by pleasure and pain as we are? It seems they could accompliosh the same
functions without these experiences. Would we want them to feel pleasure
just to be nice to them? Like why should we hog all the good stuff, lets
give some to our loyal slaves! Why try to make robots into humans? Just use
the existing technology and clone your favorite person!
