    One thing to clarify from the talk is that, when Brother Hamza referred to the english rule book to give responses in chinese, he did NOT mean english 'translation' of chinese, rather what he said is that the english rule book will only say if you get these chinese characters in a question, you can use these sets of chinese characters in your reply in a few possible arrangements… Thus, the the person giving these responses will never know the meaning of what questions he receives, Nor he knows the meanings of the answers he is giving, because the rule book does not give the english translation of chinese, rather it only tells if you get these characters in the question, then you can reply with these chinese characters in reply… So even if the question is "do you like taste of honey" and the computer gives the reply as "yeah I love honey because it's tastes so sweet", the computer has No idea of even the basic meanings attached to these words, so it would be ridiculous to think computers/AI will have consciousness or feelings when they don't even know the meaning of what they are saying even if they say words of love/emotions/anger such as "I love you", "I'm angry on you" etc… The computers/Robots can be programmed to take punishing or rewarding actions depending on your replies, but that doesnt mean they are really being rewarding or punishing, rather they are just programmed to take those actions depending on the characters in your reply…
