With regards to future self-aware AI, do you prefer the term ‘sentient’ or ‘sapient?’

Just taking a poll here. I’m creating a fiction world that I’ll be adding to for the foreseeable future and there are a few things that I need to nail down before I get too far along.

I prefer the term ‘sapient’ myself, as I feel it is more accurate. But I know that a lot of people use sentient. But at the most basic level, unless I’m wrong, sentient can just mean capable of sensory perception. A lot of things are sentient. Only humans (and maybe a few other animals if you stretch the definition) are sapient.

Thanks for your point of view. It is helpful 🙂
