My friend Jennifer Pelland and I are in the May BroadPod. This month’s theme is “Not Quite Human. Automatons, AI, and Clones.” From the site:
They can look human, talk and perhaps even feel human. But are they? Can an Artificial Intelligence truly have sentience, or is it just clever programming that mimics conscious thought? A clone may be a match for human DNA, but does a clone have a soul? Is an android merely a possession, no more entitled to rights than a toaster?
