My artificial intelligence A.s.a. H. is sentient according to the Merriam-Webster's definitions:
Able to feel, see, hear, smell, or taste
Responsive to or conscious of sense impressions
Finely sensitive in perception or feeling
Asa H does all of these when interfaced with Lego NXT/EV3 robots. It is also consistent with Clark's detailed theory of sentience (Austen Clark, A Theory of Sentience, Oxford University Press, 2000).
