Yes, because those robots will be us. River Ape, you haven't been reading Kurtzweil. The brain is a kind of computer. Half a mouse brain has already been simulated on a supercomputer, and shows behavior similar to a real mouse brain. Someday, computing power will be such that a human brain can be scanned and it's functions simulated on computers. Wether you make a brain with cells or tinkertoys, the consciousness effect will be the same.
