Would You Consider A Humanoid Robot A Person If It Functioned Using A Cognitive Human Brain?Posted by: pozessed
If a robot were controlled by an internal human brain that maintained the memories and personality of the person it was transferred from, would you consider that machine to be a person?
Yes It would be human.
No it would not be a person.
The wording here is inconsistent. It would definitely be a "person", but I'm not sure if it would be a "human".
I agree, a human being not only needs the brain, but it needs the heart and the living soul of a homo sapien. But it is a person.
Yes, it would still be a 'person' as long as it had all the same capabilities for self-awareness and a subjective consciousness as all other 'persons' do. Depending on the exact method of transfer, though, I'm not sure it would still be the 'same' person as it used to be.
