The concept of symbolic machine has become a common metaphorical designation of the computer. Semioticians, especially computer semioticians, have reasons to generalize this designation to semiotic machine. But what is a semiotic machine? If it is just a machine involved in sign processing, a typewriter might perhaps also be called a semiotic machine; if it is a machine not only involved in sign processes, but also creating processes of sign production and interpretation (i.e., processes of semiosis), there may be doubts whether ordinary computers may be called semiotic machines.
