So, let's say we eventually DID develop the technology for holograms. I would assume most would be unawares as to their being holograms. However, sentient ones could have some advantages. On the other hand, we could have a Terminator-esque kind of situation on our hands, too. Look at VOY's Doctor, every two episodes he would go off slaying people!


Overall, would sentient holograms be a good idea, or too dangerous?


 


Live long and prosper.

Depends on how the sentient hologram was programmed. If it is programmed based on human notions then the hologram would become a sociopathic vindictive being that lusted for one thing power over another hologram and all of humanity to render itself as God.


Would be an awesome sci-fi movie wouldn't it?

Yeah, that's a pretty good idea! 


Maybe the CBS/Paramount people will take the hint and make it! LOL

Sentient holograms (SHs) would enable us to use impractical-but-artistically aesthetic ships like the Oberth.  They could work in detached parts of the ship, yet still function and communicate.  An Environmental Engineer on the Bridge could be an SH, in case the humanoids were incapacitated.

SH's could be used to develop automated mining facilities in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. The SH's would have various functions of operations ranging from operating extraction vessels to communication with Earth based facilities where they would report their daily activities.

Although SHs could be used for hazardous jobs, but then you run into the ethical dilemma of whether they--as sentient beings--should be arbitrarily tasked with such jobs.  As sentient beings, I think they should be given the option of performing such jobs, with suitable compensation, if they agree to it.


However, they should be fully informed of any risks they might face, before they are "volunteered" for such work.

Very true indeed Miklamar.


If the SH did in fact have sentient abilities wouldn't it be considered slavery to confine them to a computer database regulating their activities whenever they were needed that when they weren't being used they would simply be placed into an Isolinear Chip Storage Unit until they were called on?


 


Shouldn't the SH in fact be given the shell of a humanoid type body or any body they chose to want to be implanted in?


Imagine the possibilities of a SH being implanted into creatures like Dolphins, Cats and Dogs or Mice. They could bring a new understanding to humanity on how such creatures view the world around them which would give humans further insight on the total overall environment around us.


For this matter alone SH should be considered to be the same as humans and given all of the oppurtunities and protections that humans have. 


if the SH choose to live inside of their digital matrix then so be it. If they want to live inside the shell of a creature then so be it. They should be considered the same as humans because they have made a choice to be what they want to be.


Sounds like a good plot for a really good sci-fi movie.
