Machines can imitate what human beings are capable of doing. They can do these things but the way they interpret these actions are very different thsn how humans are able to interpret them. Emotions is something a human develop as we grow but computers don't grow, they are just programmed to do certain things. For example there is no way you can teach someone instincts because thaat is something we are born with. That comouters complete certain tasks doesn't mean they can feel, or have emotions such as being in love.
