Default Re: about SAIs...

I think they are capable of the same range of emotions that a well adjusted human is. That isn't to say that their emotions are exactly the same as a human's, but they are similar.

I don't know if SAIs are likely to fall in love, since romantic love is closely tied to sexual drives in humans and I expect (most) SAIs would not have that kind of drive. They could form deep and intense friendships though and it is possible that a human could interpret such a relationship in a 'romantic' fashion.

They certainally are capable of appreciating art, music, literature and humour. Likewise SAIs can have strong religious or philosophical beliefs. They can be scared and, to a limited extent, angry. I doubt that they can lapse into depression or go mad in any way that would make sense to a human.
