This will only matter once robots/AI are very nearly sapient, which is several decades away at least. Doing something like this now is severely jumping the gun and may very well have a negative impact on short-term r/AI development and advancement.

Let's wait and get a clearer picture of where the technology is going before trying to legally quantify and tax it, eh?

If I understand the subject correctly: Humans, yes; homo sapiens, no.

That is, 'human' encapsulates more than just us modern homo sapiens, and includes other species of the genus homo, such as homo neanderthalensis (or sub-species homo sapiens neanderthalensis, depending on where you're reading).
