Given a world where a human-like brain is synthetizable, I wonder:
A human-like artificial brain would most likely crave sensorial overwhelm. Pleasure to humans is something deeply associated with perception and the lack of it. To me, a robot like Bender is one of the best depicted AIs/Robots I have ever watched. Nihilist, looking for the next bit of pleasure he can get.
I question if a human oriented bot with way more or slightly less sensorial capacity than us would explore this concept as well. Something like a super-hearing robot getting goosebumps and enjoying ultrasounds from a noisy of a factory, or getting high when exposed to undervolting or cosmic rays.
Why would a robot search for pleasure any differently than humans? Which unique ways would they be able to get it?
