For example, the human brain is a learning program.

>>>Each program is already designed to fool you into thinking that it understands...>P: I tried to say, in my last post, that understanding is a relative term. We do not understand as compared to our computers of the future. Does that make us stupid? Inferior? The answer is Yes, as compared to the computers of the future.

H: Are you assuming strong AI in order to support your argument for strong AI?>I keep hearing this complex argument, but this is not how computer programs work. They must be programmed for specific tasks. You don't download a whole bunch of code from off the internet and hope it somehow performs the task better, right? Someone must review the tasks that you wish to obtain from that software and design it according to those needs. The person must understand what you need, and then they program so that those needs are met (and then you can download it from the internet).
