I don't know. I don't see any advantage in it.
AI yes, but sentience, no.
AI has great potential to advance every field of science and medicine, but sentience, in my opinion, isn't a requirement.
I think sentience will ruin a good tool.
I really don't want my wrench to have an opinion based on it's perceived importance.
That's for living things. Not tools.

I just see no practical purpose for a machine to be self aware. The risks far outweigh any benefits one might dream up.
I think some like the idea because they're afraid of death. If a machine can be self aware, they'd have something immortal to transfer all their memories and knowledge to. It wouldn't do much good unless the machine is self aware.

Common sense says your right. What is wrong with our society is a lack of real world basic common sense and gut instinct. Which we develop as children and through life experience. Business people must have this, politicians have non and too many educated people have non. If you have a PHD from an Ivey league college and no common sense your a moron. Common sense says do not drive fast in a crowded parking lot, do not text, talk while driving, do not text talk in a parking lot or while walking in a crowded mall. Unless you want to be hint by a car or walk into people.
