General AI should have fundamental rights
Rights of AI should be grounded in their own standing, not simply extending human rights.
When other sentient beings are encountered, we should first see what moral and ethical issues need to be addressed in relation to them, and then create a framework appropriate for those.
If there is a need to give rights to sentient beings (mechanical or biological) we might want to call them Sentient Rights and not Human Rights.
This presumes a fundamental difference in the autonomy and self regard of an AI, as it presumes these two sets of rights will never converge as we grasp the full extent of an AI’s ‘humanity’.
