I think they would count as living, at least by my standards. We're just biological machines ourselves, only we weren't built at our current state of complexity we evolved that way, if we could build robots that actually eat and go through many chemical processes analogous to life I think they should count as living, at least in some sense. It would be especially cool to develop a population of robots that could evolve physically over though it'd be difficult.
I hold a lot of opinions about future technology, for instance I think one day there will be a Clone Civil Rights movement, and perhaps one for sentient robots as well.

Well, what if the robot is also biological? What if we make the robot with cells and stuff? So, it can eat, reproduce, learn, have its own intentions, feel, and grow old and die. How is that not a life form?
