Giving Birth

Lately I was thinking on robots and that we in general like to have robots be alive or we treat them like they would be alive or they will get alive.

First. I think that the key for robots making a vivid impression are not gestures, but mainly reaction. If you threw something at the robot and he will react, than we will get the impression of something that lives. That gets me to the second point.

Second. If we create robots, and that is what we do, when will be the point where we say: hey, that bot is alive? When is the point when we give birth to that robot? This really is something else than playing god, but at least I think that this point is worth discussing although we know that robots never will be life.
