Will computers ever achieve consciousness? John Searle, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy and cognitive science at U.C. Berkeley and author of Intentionality and Minds, Brains and Science. He challenges the notion that the human mind operates like a computer, pointing out that intentionality and other human faculties are not achievable through artificial intelligence.

Does Mind Matter? (#Q294)

EXCERPT:

"That's why computers are so marvelous, is that they're a symbol-manipulating machine. They don't have to know anything. They don't have to know what any of these words stand for, what any of these symbols mean."
--John Searle
