I don't think that A.I. should be owned because they may become more intelligent and that could cause problems. For example, lets say that they start reading about our history and they read about slavery, they might think that we are doing the same to them. Then they might rebel and cause a huge and unnecessary war. Obviously we would lose because we are weaker than the A.I. both physically and mentally. If we let them live on their own them there would be peace. Not only for A.I. but for humans alike.

A.I should not be considered human because they are different than us. They are far stronger and smarter. Not to mention immortal. As humans are born and die, A.I. stay the same. Before long they will over populate humans. Another reason why A.I. should not be considered human is that they are...
