Ashley Leibowitz What is it to be human?

This brings into question what it means to be human. Certainly learning, making decisions, and sharing information is part of it - and machines would qualify on that basis. However, there are other criteria such as emotional and "spiritual" attributes which machines don't have, and are much more difficult to define. The cyber-person (combination of man and machine), which looks like will become a reality, will really test our notions of humanity.
