  Chinese Room Argument [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Searle's Chinese Room experiment parodies the Turing test, a test for artificial intelligence proposed by Alan Turing (1950) and echoing René Descartes' suggested means for distinguishing thinking souls from unthinking automata.
To the Chinese room's champions - as to Searle himself - the experiment and allied argument have often seemed so obviously cogent and decisively victorious that doubts professed by naysayers have seemed discreditable and disingenuous attempts to salvage "strong AI" at all costs.
Not Strong AI (by the Chinese room argument).

  Chinese Poker | How to Play | Online Poker
Chinese poker is a very popular card game amongst the Asian community and has been played for many, many years.
Chinese poker uses a combination of luck and skill, even though it seems that luck has more of an impact on the outcome of the game than skill.
The objective of Chinese poker is for a player to arrange their thirteen cards in three poker hands and to beat the corresponding hands of their opponents.

 The Chinese Room Argument (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The Chinese Room argument, devised by John Searle, is an argument against the possibility of true artificial intelligence.
Many responses to the Chinese Room argument have noted that, as with Leibniz’ Mill, the argument appears to be based on intuition: the intuition that a computer (or the man in the room) cannot think or have understanding.
As described, the Chinese Room is a Clever Hans trick (Clever Hans was a horse who appeared to clomp out the answers to simple arithmetic questions, but it was discovered that Hans could detect unconscious cues from his trainer).

 Chinese Room
In the Chinese Room scenario, a person who understands no Chinese sits in a room into which written Chinese characters are passed.
The idea is that a Chinese-speaking interviewer would pass questions written in Chinese into the room, and the corresponding answers would come out of the room appearing from the outside as if there were a native Chinese speaker in the room.
The operator of the room need not have any understanding of what the interviewer is asking, or of the replies that he is producing.

 Chinese room - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Chinese Room argument is a thought experiment designed by John Searle (1980 [1]) as a counterargument to claims made by strong artificial intelligence (AI, also functionalism).
For the Chinese Room to pass the Turing Test, either the operator would have to be supported by vast numbers of equal minions, or else the amount of time given to produce an answer to even the most basic question would have to be absolutely enormous.
Searle’s reply is to suppose that, unbeknownst to the individual in the Chinese room, some of the inputs he was receiving came directly from a camera mounted on a robot, and some of the outputs were used to manipulate the arms and legs of the robot.

 The Chinese Room
In the room there is also a book containing a complex set of rules (established ahead of time) to manipulate these characters, and pass other characters out of the room.
However these thought experiments, when well designed, as is the case of the Chinese Room, have this bad habit of biting you in the back as soon as you turn away, with that warm feeling of mission accomplished in your heart, after having presented the ultimate argument on the subject.
I would also like to use the Chinese Room thought experiment as an excuse to expound my views on some practical aspects pertaining to the implementation of human-level intelligent devices, which is, after all, the ultimate goal of Artificial Intelligence.

In this room, Searle uses a "rule book" (program), the writers of the book (programmers), and himself (computer) to show that he is able to answer questions that are in Chinese even though he does not know Chinese.
Searle's Chinese Room shows that it is not the case that the "computer" understands.

 Chinese Screens & Chinese Room Dividers
Chinese folding screens were often placed just after the door or entryway of a large room to prevent passers-by from seeing inside.
Whether mobile or not chinese screens nearly always had painting of decorative land scapes and were usually made of solid, heavy wood hinged on cloth, silk, or leather thongs pulled through close to the panels´ edges.
Some antique chinese screens dating from the eighth century A.D. still survive today but they are believed to have been first made in the third century B.C. Such screens have wooden frames framed with silk or paper.

By the way, you don't understand Chinese, nor are you aware that the symbols that you are manipulating are Chinese symbols.
In fact, the Chinese characters which you have been receiving as input have been questions about a story and the output you have been producing has been the appropriate, perhaps even "insightful," responses to the questions asked.

A belief of strong AI is that if a machine were to pass a Turing test, then it can be regarded as "thinking" in the same sense as human thought.

 Philo132: Chinese Room: Paper #1: The Proxy Reply
While the Chinese Room is intended to show that intentionality can't be induced merely by sufficient complexity, I believe that there are significant flaws in the argument, as well as the Turing Test it is derived from.
The Chinese Room seeks to separate man from machine regardless of their respective functional levels, but in this paper I hope to show that the argument is flawed by the very assumption that a creation of man has no consciousness in it.
The fallacy inthe Chinese Room argument is the perception of the room as a 3-D space, instead of a 4-D space.

The name of this room comes from the walls which, over the course of 150 years, were covered in blue Chinese silk decorated with watercolor landscapes and genre paintings.
In the 18th century, the room was called the "Blue Drawing Room." This interior was created in 1783 by Charles Cameron, who kept the room the same size as in the original design by Vasily Neyelov.
Following the fire in 1820, the room's painted ceiling was redone by the artist F. Brulot to depict the theme of "Flora and Zephyr" based on the drawings and colors present in the original.

 Searle's Chinese Room
To prove this the notion of a "Chinese Room" is introduced, where a native English speaker who understands no Chinese, may enter a room and find a book entitled "What to do if they slip Chinese writing under the door".
Searle's Chinese Room can be altered to serve as a Chinese-English Room where Searle, after internalizing the program could translate from Chinese to English but not from English to Chinese.
Although Searle's arguments from the Chinese Room experiment eventually fails, it would be erroneous to conclude from that that strong AI is correct.

 CRYONICS #??? - Chinese Room
If you could give a person or computer a sophisticated enough set of instructions about the Chinese language, you could place that person/computer in a room and have messages sent into the room in Chinese.
The person/computer would use the instructions to answer the message in Chinese, and an observer outside the room wouldn't realize that the person/computer didn't "know" Chinese at all.
So Searle's Chinese Room argument sounds like a serious Gedankenexperiment, but its assumptions are so far off base that I can't see any reason to be puzzeled, encouraged, or otherwise affected by it in your thinking about thinking.

 generation5 - John Searle
Also in his room is a huge book with English instructions as to how to look up the answers and write them on a piece of paper to the Chinese questions - therefore, practicalities aside, he could look up any question and give the right answer.
I knew when I originally formulated the Chinese Room Argument that it was decisive against what I call "Strong Artificial Intelligence", the theory that says the right computer program in any implementation whatever, would necessarily have mental contents in exactly the same sense that you and I have mental contents.
The Chinese Room Argument refutes the view that the implemented computer program, regardless of the physics of the implementing medium, is sufficient, by itself to guarantee mental contents.
