trick a real human being, it must possess the characteristics of a human being in order to achieve that. The computer must learn the language that is presented to it and be able to put together an answer that makes sense in that language. The drawback I see in the Chinese room claim is that it does not use a machine in its case. It's just like contrasting a person to what a machine does. Another question that would arise in this case would be the motive. Why would Watson have to reduce the power supply to Siri if it was not smart? Since we can assume that the machine is intelligent and self-confident, it would be envy or rivalry that would limit its output. Watson would have had to have been a person to give Watson an order directly or enforced in his software if he were just a machine that depicted the signals and realigned them. But since besides Watson there was no other person involved, we might conclude that he played intelligently and chose to do so. With all the proof I have obtained and my understanding of the Turing test and the Chinese room case, I conclude Watson behaved knowingly and should be found guilty of the first-degree murder of Siri. I truly believe Watson was acting on the basis of the thoughts he produced, not the thoughts that were programmed within him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
