Description: Despite the influx of artificial intelligences (AIs) into human society, we know little about how humans extend moral consideration to these artificial entities. The purpose of this survey is to assess the extent to which people show moral concern for AIs and to study people’s attitudes about the social integration of AIs in a nationally representative sample of US Americans. We will frame the survey with a focus on sentience in artificial entities (“artificial sentience”) and we will ask about attitudes towards current entities as well as attitudes about sentient artificial entities in the future. We also seek to contextualize the moral consideration of artificial entities by examining how moral attitudes relate to demographic characteristics, relevant psychological tendencies, and the moral consideration of other nonhuman entities (i.e., nonhuman animals, the environment).
