Artificial Intelligence: You know it isn't real, yeah?

It does not at all matter if humans are also computers and algorithmic. The point is we have an inherent, built in and functioning value system, emotions, unambiguous data storage and retrieval system, instincts, pain/pleasure motivations, etc., that we likely will never understand or be able to program into a computers.

We function in complex ways relevant to our inherent system of values, instincts, etc.

Since computers can never share this exact set of instincts and values, they will never be relevant to us in terms of those human instincts and values.
