How do we decide what is uniquely human? What is uniquely robotic?

I tend not to think of technology in general as something outside of humanity. We create most technology to enrich our lives in some way. Technology done right, and by extension robotics, has the quality of allowing us to be more human. Right now, robots and their functionality are a mirror of humanity.

What you think about it !!!

I'm not sure if I understood the question well, but I think its about how we can differentiate between a human and a robot. Its pretty obvious that if we want to differentiate a human and a robot in today's time, then we can say that a robot is something which can't do something without the aid of an external variable, as for humans they're be pretty much the same from physical to psychological traits. 

But if we want to compare these two in the near future when robots might achieve perfection that it can make and run maintenance on itself, not to mention think and speak on its own ( just a hypothesis for now ), then that time we can say in terms of mental capability they might be a little better not that I'm sure about there innovative thinking. In that case the only thing that might differ these two will most likely be their hearts because robots are designed to take the most suitable decision depending upon the situation.. Things like empathy or concern isn't in their dictionary so it'll just do what it thinks right for the better and not care if someone might get hurt with that decision, but of course most of the human being are really good in showing empathy.
