Oh, I dunno. Robots are more humanizable than corporations. And as for corporations, Hobby Lobby
has already been granted religious rights. I don't think it's so farfetched that there will soon be a Data
law granting AI robots citizenship if AI actually
moves in the Data direction.
However, I don't think that's the direction that AI will move. Rather, AI will engulf us by making us part of itself, in the sense that we are all part of the internet, the googleverse, the Facebook algorithms, the credit card computations, and as all of these become more and more inescapable, we will become[/i] part of the AI we create, and will understand what it's "doing" as well as our liver cells understand the newspaper we read.
