Alien Rooms! What Do They Know? Do They Know Things? Let's Find Out!

by Marjie62 - Jam Entry

Your lab has found a mysterious alien box that takes in alien text and returns a response in the same language. Reverse engineer the box to understand the alien language: design a factory to manipulate symbols on a stone tablet to imitate the alien "Chinese Room".

A Chinese Room is a thought experiment in which a person who does not speak Chinese sits inside a room with a book of instructions on how to manipulate Chinese symbols. The person receives Chinese texts through a window, follows the instructions in their book, and returns a response text in Chinese. The question is, does the room speak Chinese?
