abstract
  • Sentience is the ability to feel or perceive. Another definition commonly used for 'sentience' is to be aware of oneself, or to know that one exists.
  • The word "sentience" has changed in meaning back and forth across the centuries. In the 21st century, for example, it meant the ability to feel or perceive, which may or may not have included being intelligent or self-aware. A separate concept in use at the time was the term "sapient", which meant the ability to act with intelligence. So, for example, a plant could be "sentient", and a computer "sapient" with neither having to have the attributes of the other. Intelligent life was therefore called sapient. That changed sometime prior to the 22nd century. At that point intelligent life was referred to as sentient. The concepts of perception and intelligence had been combined such that the word now meant an intelligent, self-aware, conscious entity deserving of rights, respect, and freedom. (ENT: "The Seventh", "Rogue Planet", "Hatchery", "Similitude"; TNG: "The Offspring" ) In the 23rd century the word "sentient" again meant what it had in centuries past: the ability to feel or perceive. Intelligent life was therefore generally called sapient rather than sentient. (TOS: "Spock's Brain" , "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" , "All Our Yesterdays" ) In TOS: "Arena" , Spock begins to speak of the Gorn as "sentient", but his sentence was cut off. Whether he meant the word in the 21st Century sense or the 22nd Century sense was unclear from the sentence fragment. The tide turned again in the 24th century and intelligent life was referred to as it was in the 22nd: as sentient. There was, however, no commonly understood definition of the term. Despite centuries of consideration and linguistic changes, how one determined whether a lifeform or machine was sentient, and the legal and moral implications of being sentient, were neither fully understood nor agreed upon. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man" , "The Perfect Mate" ; DS9: "The Abandoned") Cyberneticist Bruce Maddox gave three soft requirements during a 2365 hearing: * Intelligence, the ability to learn, understand, and cope with new situations * Self-awareness, being conscious of one's existence and actions or aware of one's self and one's ego * Consciousness He was unable to truly argue, however, using these, that Data was not sentient while Jean-Luc Picard was. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man" )

Daniel Graystone was attempting to develop a Cylon with the ability to observe and predict an adversary's actions, for the purposes of disabling the adversary.("Pilot") With the installation of the meta-cognitive processor, along with data from his daughter's twin avatar, the U-87 seems to possess more than human-level dexterity and observation/processing skills; however the Graystone Industries workers remain baffled as to why the MCP only works in one robot, not realizing that Zoe's personality remains within the robot.
