Personhood and Artificial Intelligence
AI and PersonhoodSaudi Arabia recently granted Sophia, a robot, the status of citizen. Read this article about Sophia and see her speak in front of a live audience in the video below. What conditions, given recent advances in the development of sophisticated AI, would you require for you to consider such AI to be ‘persons’? If you wouldn’t consider them people under any circumstances, explain why. Include a specific reference to one or both of the excerpts from John R. Searle on pages 355-356 of our text in your response. What is his take on AI as a person/potential person? NB: Students frequently post comments in this thread such as ‘AI will never be human’ or ‘no, I do not and will not consider AI to be human.’ BUT!!! It’s worth noting that we’re debating whether AI should be considered persons rather than humans. Clearly, being human necessitates having human DNA and other characteristics, so AI cannot be human. Make sure to keep your comments focused on AI’s potential personhood.

Is It True That We Have Free Will?
Is It True That We Have Free Will?
[Make sure you’ve read Section C of Chapter 7 before continuing with this thread.]
Baron d’Holbach presents the argument known as hard determinism in his book System of Nature (p. 446 in our text), which claims that free will does not exist and is an illusion. Give a 3- to 4-sentence summary of his argument that we don’t have free will for this discussion, and then respond to his argument. Also, watch the video below, in which philosopher and neuroscientist Sam Harris presents a thought experiment to demonstrate that free will does not exist, and then write about your reaction to it. Is Harris able to persuade you of his point of view? Why do you think that is? Finally, how can you defend your position if you believe you have free will? Students frequently assert “I have free will because I make choices” or “I have free will because I can do whatever I want” during this discussion. However, such responses fall prey to the begging of the question fallacy. Such claims essentially state, “I have free will because I have free will.” Attempt to avoid this fallacy in your response.
