This animation shows how a robot would function when controlled by our "digital" version of Searle's Chinese Room. Searle inside the room is now manipulating the binary symbols of 0's and 1's rather than Chinese. The data he receives (0's and 1's) are from a video camera which gets data from the world.

(Inspired by John Searle's "Chinese Room Argument," produced by The Mind Project and used in a complete curriculum module on "Searle's Chinese Room Argument".)
