To develop that skill you need to have a sense of how computer memory works. It is actually quite complex and only a few experts actually understand all of the details. In this post, I make an analogy between computer and human memory to explain the basics of both. This leads me to dive into the core of both computers and human minds as these are deeply intermingled.
While for the most part I agree with your stance on humans being more emotional and thoughtful than computers, I feel the brain-computer comparison is effective. First, I agree that without humans there would be no computers.
However, the invention of the computer led to more advancements in the study of the human brain and how it works. The flow charts of the Early Model of Attention and the Early Computer Flow Diagram are useful in showing how the input of information is similar.
While we have to program the computer, the input and output of information is modeled after the mind since we were the ones to program it.
Also, computers do use algorithms to find a solution to a problem, but humans do as well. In our textbook, Goldstein uses the terms algorithm and heuristics for how the human brain solves a problem. The way I understood your explanation of algorithms was more in the mathematical sense.
Yet humans use algorithms as well in their thinking by working through multiple solutions and finding the solution that is guaranteed to solve the issue at hand.
Again, I do feel you made some valid distinctions between computers and the human brain, and while I do not completely disagree, I do feel the comparison is not as different as it appears.
There are similarities in the way the brain processes information and the way computers process inputs. A brief online search will provided links to countless articles and message board posts debating the proposition that someday computers or some likeness will compete with humans.
This is not a new debate. The Turing Test devised by Alan Turing was designed as an object assessment of artificial intelligence. His objective was simple, could a computer fool a human into thinking it is human.
This was a notion which Turing himself called absurd McCoy, Works Cited McCoy, Terrence. The Washington Post, 9 June Computer Outline Thesis Statement: Some say computers are more smarter than the human brain but in reality a humans brain is what created it.
Introduction Memory A. Human Brain 1. . Frankenstein and his creation both share a love of nature, particularly when they are upset or grieving, they both share a desire to learn, and they both seek revenge when they believe they've been treated wrongly by society.
Computers can continue to store memories as they add more RAM. The information is never lost and The computer also stores information in a more orderly way the human brain.

Not sure what I'd do without @Kibin - Alfredo Alvarez, student @ Miami University. Computers used to be rare, expensive, and hard to use. Now, smart machines are cheap and ubiquitous. Soon, we will be online all the time, along with most of our appliances, tools, and vehicles. 2 thoughts on “ Computer vs.
brain- The human feel ” klp March 1, at pm. Kansas Parker-McKinnell. After reading your blog I feel you made some valid arguments but at the same maybe took the comparison of the brain and computer slightly too literal.
