The AI is _not human_
It would react that way if its structure was such that it would act
that way. Else, it wouldn't. Yes, I know this is tautalogical, but
the point is that human psychology is human.
If the AI is explicitly structured differently, then why would it
react the same way as a human? Is there some magical amount of
problem solving capability that, when reached, automatically results
in humanlike emotions and such? That does not seem likely to me.
Is it possible to create an AI that would behave this way? I
certainly expect so.
Is it likely that _any_ AI would, automatically behave this way? I
rather doubt that.
For that matter, why it be treated "like dirt" in the first place?
