    Can the synths of Westworld be considered human?

    As seen in the beginning of Westworld season 2, some of the synths in Westworld have broken free of their programming and have obtained some version of human agency. What are the moral ramifications of this? Can they still be considered malfunctioning property with faulty software? Or are they due the same freedom of choice gifted to humans? I think an analysis of this would be interesting under the scope of certain philosophical ideas
