The Believers View of AI
The functionalists believe that the computers will be able to do everything a human mind can do. For them, thinking is simply a matter of information processing and there is no significant distinction between the way human being think and the way machines think. When the program algorithms managing the computer behaviour reach a certain critical point of complexity and function, intrinsic qualities such as free-will and consciousness will appear.
The behaviourists believe that if a computer could be instructed to behave exactly like a conscious human being, then it would be automatically assume the feelings of this creature.
