First of all, dogs actually have certain legal protections from cruelty which digients would apparently benefit from, since in the story depraved people broadcast records of them being tortured. Second, digient intelligence is farther above dogs than ours is above that of the digients. For most of the story, digients as intellects are compared with apes: capable of using tools and basic communication, but categorically below that of humans.

This is initially persuasive but falls apart on even basic examination, for digients are in fact dramatically more intelligent than apes. How much more intelligent?

Published by Subterranean. USD Overview What's the best way to create artificial intelligence? In , Alan Turing wrote, "Many people think that a very abstract activity, like the playing of chess, would be best.
