Honestly, like 90% of "should we treat robots like people?" sci-fi narratives are almost inexcusably lazy, because they're willfully ignoring the much more uncomfortable reality.

How can we be willing to acknowledge whether or not robots should be treated like people, without acknowledging the reality that people are already being treated like robots.


it is a well known statement, for artificial intelligence addicts, that it is *much* easier to adapt humans to robot then the other way round. That's the so called progress in cognitive science: crafting humans as calculators.

@Dayglochainsaw Think of so called neural networks, crafted from 1940 studies of so called "perceptrons", which draft humans neural cells as dumb devices providing a binary solution to the complexity of life, and you get the figure: science and its models destroy complexity to provide schemes in which life can be, at most, simulated. But robotic brained humans gather at commercial centres gazing at the lastcoming high-tech tool of slavery
