Ned Stark: I think that concern is a little overblown. Ever read that short story ("rules of the road"?) about the truck driving AI? I think it makes a good point. If you're building a mind from the ground up why would you make it unhappy? Just craft one that enjoys doing whatever you're gonna make it do. Having an AI drive a truck all day forever isn't as much of a dick move if it enjoys seeing new places, solitude, and driving.

Tell that to Sirius Cybernetics...
