Name: Shaa Cideg
Project Name: An Analysis of the Intelligence, and Possible Sentience, of Droids
Requested Amount: Negotiable; I don't particularly need a commission, but would accept a small amount if it was offered.
Project Deadline: It should be finished in 1 week or less
Details of Project: I will interview and observe various types of droids seen commonly and uncommonly around the galaxy to discern if droids are either created as sentient beings, or if they are able to achieve sentience. I will also analyze historical records of famous droids dating from the Mandalorian Wars to now.
Reasons for Undertaking: I have a great fondness for droids, and have always been intrigued to know whether or not they are capable of free thought. Many droids have odd "quirks" that always hint towards the capability to be sentient.
Benefit to the Guild: In addition to enhancing our general knowledge about our mechanical companions, the implications of discovering droid sentience on our established organic/machine social structures and interactions could be revolutionary and would give great heed to the droids rights campaigners.
