I Believe Chatbots Understand Part of What they say. Let me Explain.

Physicist Sabine Hossenfelder does a good job in comparing the understanding exhibited by chatbot  with our understanding of quantum Mechanics, along the way describes the 'Chinese Room' model used in early AI thoughts.    Once Again, some great thoughts.  She writes:

I used to think that today's so-called "artificial intelligences" are actually pretty dumb. But I've recently changed my mind. In this video I want to explain why I think that they do understand some of what they do, if not very much. And since I was already freely speculating, I have added some thoughts about how the situation with AIs is going to develop.
