Human-AGI integration and trade is a term which illustrates a future scenario involving Artificial General Intelligences (AGIs) establishing a mutually beneficial relationship with humans by way of trade over conflict.

Presently, legal systems provide laws which mediate disputes between parties and provide a framework in which a human society operates. In the future, this arrangement would be expanded to include AGIs. Laws which are mutually acceptable by both humans and AGIs would present legal pathways to settle conflict while also offering both species routes to acquire goods via trade.

To implement such a scenario, any AGI must be instilled with law-abiding values such that they respect human property rights. Reciprocally, humans must overcome their own bias to recognize AGI rights. Thus, humans and AGIs would peacefully coexist while also maintaining a fulfilling existence.
