Brain vs Computer


The video is a bit strange at times but the content is interesting. How does a human brain compare with a computer and does it matter? I have never considered computers to be a replacement for me – just an enhancement. They can make lots of things easier and more interesting. I also think when we look at computer capacity and then our brains it helps us to understand that we don’t really make sufficient use of our brains. The comments underneath the video on YouTube are interesting. The video is a good way to think about technology and where it fits in with us and what its purpose might be. One of the commenters comes up with this information to help clarify the comparison between brain and computer:

Brain: 2200000000000000 flops = 2200000000 Megaflops = 2200 Teraflops. Super computer = 8200000000 Megaflops = 8200 Teraflops

Brains do not process information as quickly but brains can do other things like think or is that just executing commands?
