Unfortunate personhood tests for A.I.

What if the only way to tell if a particular A.I. design is or is not a person, is to subject it to all the types of experience — both good and harrowing — that we know impact the behaviour of the only example of personhood we all agree on, and seeing if it changes in the same way we change?

Is it moral to create a digital hell for a thousand, if that’s the only way to prevent carbon chauvinism/anti-silicon discrimination for a billion?
