-- taken from

John Searle proposed (?!) to describe one's personal viewpoints regarding AI with the terms "weak" and "strong" AI:

"According to weak AI, the principal value of the computer in the study of the mind is that it gives us a very powerful tool [...] According to strong AI, the computer is not merely a tool [...] rather, the appropriately programmed computer really is a mind;"
-- Searle, J.R. (1980)
