I find myself grasping for the fine line of distinction: what is human? If a machine is programmed to emote and think, is it still a machine? If a machine is created to have a human face, is it more human and less machine? For those who think machines in the form of robots will never replace humans need to read some of Turkle’s research findings. Hopefully we have not passed the point of no return.

I have written two detailed posts on Sherry Turkle's book, reviewing its two Parts. Click here to Part 1 on man and robots, Click here to Part 2 The Networked Self.
