Could an artificial intelligence be considered a person under the law?

Could an artificial intelligence be considered a person under the law? | Curation Feed | Scoop.it
Humans aren't the only people in society – at least according to the law. In the U.S., corporations have been given rights of free speech and religion. Some natural features also have person-like rights. But both of those required changes to the legal system. A new argument has laid a path for artificial intelligence systems to be recognized as people too – without any legislation, court rulings or other revisions to existing law.

This Ladder-Climbing Robot Snake Freaks Me Out Even More Than the Real Thing

This Ladder-Climbing Robot Snake Freaks Me Out Even More Than the Real Thing | Curation Feed | Scoop.it
I’ve never been able to quite figure out why I hate snakes, but my disdain of slithering serpents extends to the robot variety as well. I’m sure part of it comes from the way they wriggle and writhe to get around; it just freaks me out. But at the same time, I’m also impressed that robotics researchers have taught robo-snakes how to climb obstacles like a ladder.
