The idea of a sentient AI is such a nonsense that I have a hard time to understand how intelligent people can believe it. Any kind of computer software obviously has no consciousnness. It's just a machine running a code. Every program that appears as a person is just a simulation. Can be a good one, able to fool people, but of course a simulated person doesn't think or feel anything. It's only mathematics, no soul, no mind. This stuff with artificial consciousness is another psyop to confuse people about the fundamental difference between living beings and machines.
