A brain is an organ that serves as the center of the nervous system in all vertebrate and most invertebrate animals. It is located in the head, usually close to the sensory organs for senses such as vision. It is the most complex organ in a vertebrate’s body.
A computer is a programmable device that stores, retrieves, and processes data. … The term was later given to a mechanical device as they began replacing the human computers. Computers have evolved much faster than the human brain. Computers have been around for only a few decades, yet rapid technological advancements have made computers faster, smaller and more powerful. … The brain needs nutrients like oxygen and sugar for power; the computer needs electricity to keep working.
In a recent report published on the Charter Spectrum Internet forum, some cutting-edge researchers in an Australian university matched the human brain against an A.I bot.
The brain still ranks out on top when it comes to devising an instant strategy. And it’s destined to stay that way for the foreseeable future.
Strategy, when you come to think about it, has everything to do with creativity. To thinking up strange new solutions to solve complicated problems.
If we think broadly enough, the whole history of human progress & development is actually rooted in this natural facility.
Inventions are made when people face new kinds of obstacles, and when they choose to stray from the beaten path.
From the way in which people in the past may have dealt with similar situations. This takes confidence, courage, and a willingness to take on risks.
A computer processor is repetitive. It relies on past knowledge and experience to come up with a solution.
And these ‘solutions’ are mostly only fit to tackle problems that are similar to the previous ones.
When faced with a new challenge, and one which breaks the ‘rules’ of the set game, it panics. And its hesitation becomes evident when it produces a response.
A very good example of where this failing can be observed in full is when someone engages in a game of chess with a PC.
People who learned to play the game using their home system will get to understand this perfectly.
At first, the software seems to win in every successive match.
Thought-processing, in some ways, can be considered akin to a computer’s processing interface. Only the brain has no set speed at which it processes information.
Unlike computer processors, which come attached with a system clock with a defined rate.
Because of its internal chemistry, the brain processes different thoughts at different priority levels.
By focusing more energy on its most immediate tasks at hand, the brain achieves greater concentration levels than any computer. And its solutions are well-contemplated.
‘Instinct’ plays a major role in the brain’s thought-processing circuitry.
In many cases, it actually ‘guides’ the brain to achieve a clearer grasp of the situation at hand.
And it offers several solutions of its own.
