Strong AI makes the bold claim that computers can be made to think on
a level (at least) equal to humans.  Weak AI simply states that some
"thinking-like" features can be added to computers to make them more
useful tools... and this has already started to happen (witness expert
systems, drive-by-wire cars and speech recognition software).  What
does 'think' and 'thinking-like' mean?  That's a matter of much
debate.
