Will computers have true intelligence?
John Hiller's "Chinese Room" thought experiment is interesting in that it begs the question, what is intelligence?
Howard Gardner, a professor at Harvard University, developed the theory of "multiple intelligences", which divides intelligence into seven dimensions.
Introspection (self-awareness and nature awareness)
If all seven of these vectors were required to be fully developed, I wonder if many of us would be ashamed to admit that we are intelligent beings as well
Regardless of the definition, what happens if we put an AI that fits these seven vectors into the "Chinese room"? Even an AI with seven fully developed items would be denied by the Chinese room. This is because it does not know the oracle bone script and does not understand the cross-reference between the oracle bone script and Chinese. Even if it gives the correct answer, it is still not recognized as an intelligent being.
In fact, according to Hiller's updated version of the Chinese Room, even if a person memorizes the oracle and Chinese cross-references and gives the correct answer, he is still not intelligent - because he does not understand the meaning. But even people aren't intelligent beings anymore, are they the only oracle experts? Isn't the conclusion of the "Chinese room" a bit unbelievable?
