I think most of us know the fact that a chess-playing computer Deep Blue developed by IBM defeated the world chess champion in 1997. Then a lot of queries come to our mind and scientists concern more about that. Can computer have intelligence and think like human beings? Will computer be superior to us and replace us in the future? On hearing these questions, many people may think that it’s impossible that computer will be superior to human.

The key is that, computer is only executing or repeating the command which is expressed in the form of program, computer cannot solve the new problems that it has never met, and it doesn’t have the ability to innovate.

Furthermore, though computer can act like human, it is still a computer; it doesn’t have feelings or free will. We have feelings, we will be happy or unhappy, we will be ashamed when we do something wrong. We have soul and we are alive. We have free will to decide what...
