Donald Cooper Essay #4 Philosophy 107 Throughout time people have always considered the thought of highly intelligent machines existing. Is it possible for machines to think like humans and interpret knowledge the same way we do? In the article “Minds, Brains, and Programs,” John R. Searle discusses whether or not machines have a strong or weak level of artificial intelligence. The main point that he is trying to make is that computers do not possess high levels of artificial intelligence. They might be able to spit out information when formulated to, but they do not have the ability to understand information like humans. Searle’s first dagger towards computers understanding stories and answering questions is that a computer can be given a program (for instance Chinese) and can spit out the information, which is a low level of artificial intelligence. However, that does not mean that the computer understands the information in the same way a person does. To understand that information a computer would need a high level of artificial intelligence.
