Are we speaking of US law? Is it theoretically possible to set up a
foundation with no human officers? I had once created an US
corporation and appointing a whole bunch of officers was required. The
foundation may be different though. If so, it would open interesting
possibilities w.r.t. legal status of AI.
As for the continental law, I am afraid it's not possible though.
