Computers have not yet had their ability to think out on their own. Even the most powerul computers, and the most Intelligent computers to date, do not think on their own. They have script's and programs that simply tell the computer, for example, A program that tells the computer, if 10100111, then 100011010, which those number can be interpreted through yet another program defining what those number mean.

A simpler way to explain this is a videogame for example. If you press a button on the controller, the computer in the system will interpret that defenition on where to move the character. Computers do not have the ability to reason on their own.
