Bruce Sterling in http://uxpamagazine.org/interview-with-bruce-sterling/: "Robots just don’t want to live. They’re inventions, not creatures; they don’t have any appetites or enthusiasms. I don’t think they’d maintain themselves very long without our relentlessly pushing them uphill against their own lifeless entropy. They’re just not entities in the same sense that we are entities; they don’t have much skin in our game. They don’t care and they can’t be bothered. We don’t yet understand how and why we ourselves care and bother, so we’d be hard put to install that capacity inside our robot vacuum cleaners."

Spot on. People who think intelligence will lead to motivation are confused. Genes have motivation without intelligence. The two things are almost orthogonal. Humans have very complex motivation.
