Actually, discussing goals brings up an interesting question in the ethics of AI design. If we're going to have all of these highly intelligent machines running around, is it ethical to give them goals exclusively corresponding to work given to them by humans? Is slavery still wrong if the slaves like it? If you assume that intelligence necessarily implies a consciousness (and, really, things become a bit arbitrary if you don't), do we have a responsibility to grant AIs individuality?
What do you think?
