"Person" seems to be used here as the philosophical term meaning something like "sentient entity with moral value". Personhood is not limited to human beings.

ETA: Also, wrt the AI itself, the directly next two articles in this sequence explicitly deal with the issue of making the AI itself nonsentient, as I'm surprised to find a comment from myself in 2011 pointing out. Did you really not read the surrounding articles?
