  1. Man has developed his intelligence as a result of a long and very interesting process of evolution. And computers… Your question made me think of computer science pairs.�

    Imagine that you have a certain set of characters whose meanings you don't know. You also have a different set of characters – they are just as meaningless to you. However, you have instructions in a language that you understand, which tells you how to put all this stuff together. Explanations focus on the shape of the symbols and do not reveal their meaning, i.e. they are instructions like “Take a symbol that looks like a house and put it next to a symbol that looks like a man”. Then comes the third set, also with instructions. As a result, when all the symbols are laid out in order, they are shown to someone who knows this language. The external reviewer receives a text that is quite understandable to him and, based on this fact, can assume that our subject also knows this language, although in fact this is not the case.�

    Such a thought experiment was published by John Searle in 1980. Who is interested in more details-Google “Chinese Room”. As you can see, the subject is only following instructions that they understand. With computer technology, it's about the same: they have a command system that they understand, which is interpreted in different ways – the differences only begin at this stage.

  2. Machines don't have any intelligence at all.
    Everything that looks like machine intelligence is the intelligence of people, “placed” in algorithms, and reproduced by the machine.
    And without the work of programmers, the machine is not capable of anything at all.
