Equal opportunity under the law. The logic of that concept rings loud and clear. Every person should have equal rights. But how about every robot?

Not again! The best I can say about A.I. rights is that 50 years from now I will be dead!! (with a bit of luck).

As robots have no emmotional capabilities......why should they have rights ?

To develop any emmotional responses, reward systems, pain, whatever is the

real challenge to developers.....until some sort of simple emmotional response can

be created.......it's still just a computer !
