"The human mind will always be superior to machines because machines are only tools of human minds."

The speaker asserts that the human mind will always dominate machines' because they are just human being's creature. Undoubtedly, if we assume machines are equal to human beings, they have much stronger mind than human. I, however, fundamentally agree with speakers assertation since this kind of assumption is nearly wrong.

Admittedly, when it comes to creteria of the organism, it should move, breath and feel itself. However, unless humans take care of this kind of a machine for a long time, it can not do anything ifself. As another standard, the mutual response between the organism and humans is essential. A bunch of people can interact with their own pets and even botany. Nevetheless, it is rough thing that people have interaction with their automatic cleaner and computer. Therefore, it is natural that human being is much superior to these kins of machines.

On the other hands, provided that machine have some intelligence, they are always in charge of some drudgery instead of people. As an illustration, all of the hard things like mining, cleaning and construcing are authorized by many machines. For that reason, we might say that they have stiffness and robustness, which are much greater than humans'. Throughout this aspects, many people might obtain some instruction, but since beginning assumption is rather unreasonnable, machines do not have mind that is equal to humans'.

Finally, we can observe the difference between humans and machines. A few years ago, the fact that computer won the world champion of chess. Both a number of people and the champion were suprised. However, the computer do not have not only astounding feeling but also carmaderie and love. Also, except for these feeling, mankind have a variety of feelings as all people know. Thus, even though this computer exceeded the barrier of human intelligence, it does not mean that it does not have superior mind to human.

As shown above, I admit that machines play an important role in doing hard job. However, they lack feeling of warmth such as maternity and affection. Therefore, the fact that the artificial intelligence is inferior to humans is robust.
