Machine not person unless society says so
A machine or individual isn't a person until society collectively declares it one. This requires the machine to have a gender, flesh-and-blood body, ability to feel pain etc. If a machine lacks any of these it won't be treated as a person.


Dwight Van De Vate Jr, 1971.
