What is it to be human? : Digital tools may provide a series of answers

What is it to be human? Fundamental questions such as these are both simple and complex because it is asking for the fundamental answer for an abstract concept. For many, this question conjures up the role of DNA and the millions of years of evolution that make us who we are today, or conversely the role of our environment and culture that shape us as one node of billions of nodes. To professionals who are involved with these debates, both evolution and environment interplay with one another to define what it is to be human.
