Subject: The thing about the Turkey boy... (the reality)
Hey there guys,

-Seriously, I am the real Turkish boy, and all others are pretending to be me.

-And it is not true that I am a high school student; I am a sophomore at MIT.

-And I have no beef with UofT; I do think it is a good school.

-Oh also, I just came and read all the comments about "Turkey boy."

-But seriously, if you Torontonians continue to make up stuff about me, you will have/earn one more basher.

~~~~~The Turkish boy~~~~~

Also, I don´t think it is really effective. It doesn´t really work although it is initially convincing. Connectionism seems to work better.

but the most convincing aspect of Searle is jumping on UofT´s nuts

lol. obviously you don´t know what your talking about. connectionism is not the issue. the issue centers around multiple realizability.

1. His Chinese room argument fails as a general argument against AI: this argument only speaks to those programs that can be run on a Chinese room.

2. An functionalist Strong AI person can legitimately hold onto his/her thesis for alternative functional architectures.

3. The main reason that Searle´s criticism fails is that this form of functionalism leaves it entirely open what it is about running a particular program that is expected to constitute understanding
