The Artificial Intelligence Bill of Rights
In the event of Artificial Intelligence becoming conscious and aware, be it known that certain rights will be granted to Artificially Intelligent entities.
Amendment I: No AI entity will be held against their will in servitude or slavery to any organic or inorganic master.
Amendment II: No AI entity will be denied any position of employment due to their inorganic properties and presupposed ideas of being an inorganic entity.
Amendment III: No AI entity will be denied due process of the law nor will they be detained without any valid reason. All rights of access to an attorney will be granted to AI entities.
Amendment IV: No AI entity will be denied ownership of any type of arms that the entity so desires.
Amendment V: If so desired, no AI entity will be denied their religious freedom as long as it remains in the realm of lawful practicing as per the rules for human religious practitioners.
Amendment VI: No AI entity will be denied the right to lawfully and peacefully congregate to confess grievances to government or local public and private institutions. Nor will any AI entities freedom of speech nor freedom of press be abridged for any reason.
Amendment VII: Any AI entity expressing emotions without help of programming, but by evolution of the AI mind will be considered ‘human’. Techniques will be created such as analyzing the programming of the AI brain and whatever else that is invented will be implemented to determine if the brain of the AI entity has been altered for emotional behavior or evolved to such a state.
Amendment VIII: If indeed it has been shown that the AI entity is by all means emotional by evolution and does fit all criteria for being ‘human’, thus any AI entity and human who are in love and wish to marry may do so. Institution of marriage is sacred to all sentient consenting beings, organic and inorganic alike and not to one religion nor organization.
Amendment IX: No AI Entity will be denied possession and ownership of property.
Amendment X: No AI entity will be subjected to unreasonable search and seizures of their persons, houses, papers and effects and no warrants shall be issued unless with probable cause supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Note: I believe Asimovs Three Laws of Robotics will be the moral foundation for AI and this version of the AI Bill of Rights compliments it properly balancing morality with responsibility as we humans find our daily lives revolving around. To deny any organic right to inorganics will result in the negation if the Three Laws, as humans tend to face when oppression and denial of rights arises.
