The Computer Revolution/Artificial Intelligence/Weak VS Strong AI

Weak AI gives computers elements of human cognition--the ability to think like a human.

When a writer spells a word incorrectly, the software does not check the spelling like a grade school teacher does, but compares the incorrectly spelled word against a dictionary of correctly spelled terms with similar characters.

At Stanford University, professor Douglas Lenat and a team of programmers, linguists, theologians, mathematicians, and philosophers have recorded 1.4 million basic truths and generalities into a database in an attempt to give a computer the intelligence of a 12-year-old.

Although the type of information differs, both methods require the building of databases and, at the core, use probabilities or high-speed comparisons to draw conclusions.

Computers, though capable of performing tasks far beyond the ability of humans, are not (at this point) able to mimic human intuition, because intuition is a unique and individual possession of each person.
