As machines gain sophistication, we face societal challenges. We have to start asking important questions now so we will be ready for machines of the future. Examples of those questions are: Can there ever be a machine so advanced that we will consider it a (non-human) person? Should we invest in making robots imitate humans? Should we outlaw the practice? Cyborgs are humans with artificial parts. Is there some point at which a cyborg has so many artificial parts that it ceases being a person?

Miller taught computer science at The College of William and Mary and the University of Illinois at Springfield until his retirement in 2013. During that time, he also served as a consultant for several software companies and an expert witness on issues of intellectual property and software quality. He is now a member of the College of Education at the University of Missouri, St. Louis.
