Human vs Machines

 

Can machines think? Yes, I think this question is very general, if you mean doing calculations and getting from point A to point B than the answer is yes. But thinking is more than calculations. If you make a mistake, people will ask you "what were you thinking!". When it comes to chosing the right thing to do through common sense, thinking becomes more complex. I don't think a computers are at the same level of thinking as a human. 

Can machines become conscious? No, to me being conscious is having a soul. computers can never have souls.

Can machines have emotions? Machines can have fake emotions, manipulated emotions. They can show emotions but it will not effect them as humans are effected.

 My decision that machines can perform complicated procedures, but they are not comparable to humans still stands
