Our technological age - I am a computer therefore I am

There are opposing views on our future world with computers:

The contrast is that according to Strong AI, (a belief that Computers can think) the correct simulation really is a mind ergobeware of the demon we might face.
Wheras, according to Weak AI, the correct simulation is a model of the mind, we are in control as the computer is syntactical and will never have the semantics of humans. 

It follows, if  a computer is defined as anything that can carry out computations, then every normal human being is a computer, and consequently, a rather large number of computers can think, namely every normal human. The point is not that computers cannot think. The point is rather that computation as standardly defined in terms of the manipulation of formal symbols is not by itself constitutive of, nor sufficient for, thinking.
