Are you human ? The non Turing Henlein test

Now that Google has released Cadie into the wild wild web, it is time to rethink our definition of who or what is human.

Now, the standard AI (Artificial Intelligence) test is the Turing test where you have to convince a human examiner that you are human.

But Henlein has a definition which would appeal to a lot of us. Here it is

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

So, Are You Human ?

I'm partly human.
