TheVat Posted July 19, 2021 Share Posted July 19, 2021 To avoid insanity, it seems to me you would need developmental stages that would correspond to human infancy and childhood. And some kind of stable virtual environment with parental figures of some sort. In short, you would need a deliberate effort from humans at developing a sentient AI, which would be "birthed" with basic desires and an environment where it is motivated to seek the satisfaction and refinement of desires, growing in awareness as it does so. To have an entity that is, as Peterkin put it, "undirected" is to have something incoherent and possibly self-terminating. To have an "I, " it's likely that you also need "others.
