Would an AI eat an animal?
We all have our justifications for allowing animals to be treated the way that they are. The most common ones are based on opinions that are more or less along the lines of: “they are less intelligent than us”, “they don’t communicate in the same way as us” and “we’re on top of the food chain”. We might consider them to be more than just a steak to us, but ending up eaten is their main reason for being bred into existence.
If a super intelligent AI that uses biomass for fuel would use these same justifications for what it consumes, it would not only eat animals, but it would most definitely consume human flesh as well. Think about it. How are we any more to them than animals are to us?
You would assume that they wouldn’t do it since they can just eat plants instead. But wouldn’t you make the same assumption about humans?
Let’s just hope that the upcoming AIs have more empathy towards other sentient creatures than we humans do. We need to set example for treating other creatures with love and care but with the way things are now, we aren’t really doing that, are we?
