Not to mention that it automatically repairs damage. Think about how awesome that is. Fully automatic healing of physical damage.

Let's not even get into how the brain re-wires itself to optimize newly learned tasks. It will take humans a very long time to replicate the human brain with a machine, let alone surpass it.

I remember my old biology teacher told me that every time we learned something new, we forgot something old. He said the brain needed to make space for the new knowledge.

This terrified me and is the main reason I refuse to learn another language in case I forget English.

Simple, one day during evolution a patch was suppose to come out and it was rushed, caused our system to BSOD and since then instead of correcting it, Nature decided to work around it...think of it as the human brain being stuck in Vista.....it works, but not well

If you follow Moore's law, we should have a computer more powerful than a human brain in about 9 years, with computing power doubling every 2 years.

The square root of sixty nine is eight-something, right? Cause I've been tryna work it out... uhhhh....


But seriously - there are obviously things which computers simply can't do (yet?) like demonstrate feeling.

More importantly though, it's not about the feeling, it's about having a complex system of feelings which can influence the computer's next move. Just as human emotions dictate our actions, I want to see a computer that can undertake independent actions based on the way it "feels." And maybe even see a computer that "enjoys" doing certain things wouldn't that be neat?

inb4 a bunch of unfunny human-computer jokes that are said every time an article like this is posted for the past few years.

too late..

The human brain is estimated to have about 100 million mips of processing power, as well as the added bonus of being extremely parallel in nature, while only using 20 watts, about as much as a laptop processor.

Each cell in our body has 350mb of information in its DNA.

The evolutionary process generally results in extremely efficient designs. That said, if a system was perfectly engineered we could do much better. For example, 98% of our DNA information is "junk", or stuff that doesn't really seem to do much (the same can be said for our physical bodies, there's lots of useless stuff). Of course even the "junk" is important surface area for mutations that can boost the host organism's performance, so I suppose it's still important for the evolutionary process, but theoretically you could cut out over 90% of our DNA and put lots of other cool stuff in there without exceeding the 350mb of data that a human currently is composed of

Then of course there are things like quantum effects, Qbits, superconductors, and other human synthesized things that were never part of the evolutionary process in the first place. To surpass the human brain, we're going to have to bring some of these into play, because as far as a computing system using basic materials found in nature, the brain is near impossible to beat efficiency wise.

hmm if we used 100% of our brain do you realize how big of a tin heatsink you would need?

Fixed.
Well, if you did, you wouldn't have enough energy to feed it. The rest of us are using out brains to the best of our ability.
