As someone who has studied the philosophy on consciousness between a great number of writers who specifically care about artificial intelligence, I will say that this video on machine rights has it all wrong. A truly intelligent computer wouldn't lack preferences and people can copy the human brain and simulate that. Is that intelligent? If it's literally a digital copy of a human brain? The creator of the script of this video is as naive as someone who doesn't leave home during a hurricane.

We program everything a robot knows and ever will now so if we do everything to create some thing why would it deserve rights because pain would still be meaningless at your point because it can just be repaired again a human cannot it can be healed but never the same as before

You can make robots conscious if you make them learn the same way a human does starting from being a baby. As long is it is able to learn, it can be conscious.

So you can't program consciousness, but they can get it naturally if they are able to learn.

If it has an inherent ability to develop thoughts, emotions and desires without requiring direct manipulation then it is conscious and deserves the rights of a conscious being.
If it has to be programmed to develop or display those things at all as would be a video game NPC, then it is a thing and does not really fall in our concept of "alive" and thus isn't entitled to any rights.
If you *create* something that was programmed to have the ability to develop those things by itself after it's creation while under the restrictions of a "creation" then you're just a fucked up person and that thing shouldn't exist.
But then, much like when people feel sorry for their phones when they accidentally drop them, we are both rationally and emotionally driven beings, and we will find a way to make a problem where there is none either way, so it doesn't matter what anyone thinks, someone emotional will always disagree.

If robot would have asked me why it shouldn't kill all humanity, I would say "I don't know". I just think that both of us are damaged, because both of us ware created by the same humans, both of us hate it, and both of us think that we would be salvation for all the universe, but what is different about us and them, what makes us sure that any of us is right?

I would say that if an AI were able to demonstrate cognition, develop emotions, learn without programming (teach itself), and develop sympathy, yes the AI should have rights. Not the same rights as a Human, but more like the same rights as a family pet.
If the AI is just cold logic and code, no. It is only following the "most accurate" information, which is not always the best. For example, a child with a rare heart condition would probably be seen as an expense and a risk. Allowing the child to die would be easier to deal with, but we Humans know we should do everything possible for the kid. Money is just money.

Every time a Captcha asks "are you a robot", I feel bad for Robin Williams in Bicentennial Man. Captchas are kinda racist...
