Abstract:

Philosopher John Searle goes through the "Chinese room argument" to prove that no matter how powerful computers are, they aren't minds. Professor Searle explains that while the computer can very rapidly manipulate formal, syntactical objects (such as words), the mind understands the meanings behind those objects. Professor Searle adds that this distinction in no way minimizes the power and value of computers. It simply proves that a computer cannot be thought of as a mind.
