Why Brains Won%u2019t Be Beaten by Supercomputers, or Terminators | Psychology Today. Computers will never have human consciousness. They will never be able to do something that humans are very good at; lie, cheat and deceive. Yes, computers will augment the ability of humans to be human. But, they look at this setup chess board and compute that, because black has a huge advantage in material, it will win the game. But, chess players will tell you that White can draw the game, and, in some cases, win. Nuance, strategy, and surprise. If a human cheats or deceives, the computer can't react. It is programmed to follow rules. If a lawyer appeals to emotion in an argument, fellow humans may make a decision based upon that emotion. So, fellow lawyers and fellow humans. Don't fear the computers. They will never be able to duplicate what we do. However, you might want to spend some time fearing the humans who control them. They can be evil. Watch your back.
