Hard to input while day dreaming about BF3 right? lol
You can not and will NOT emulate a human brain. You can NOT emulate emotion, you can NOT emulate free thought, you can NOT emulate photographic memory, you can NOT emulate emotion paired with free thought. It's impossible. Side note, our brains function with chemicals, not calculations.
By the way this is how I see it. DON'T START ANY FLAMING OR SOME DUMB BS THIS IS MY VIEW, SO SIT DOWN AND LISTEN.
God created us, we can not out power God.
Man created computer.
Computer can NOT out power us.
However I love IBM. Very much.
Free thought is IMPOSSIBLE to emulate with just using CALCULATIONS.
well we don't know that.people said it would be impossible cross the oceans, people said it would be impossible to fly. Have we done it though? Yes, we have. Before it happened though people ridiculed the idea of being able to fly or cross and entire ocean because they didn't think it was possible. i somewhat agree with you on the part that if we try to compete with the brain like were trying to do right now, we'll never be as efficient as the brain. Quantum effects, Qubits(quantum bit), super conductors, and anything else we invent will most definitely be able to best our brain. as long as we can take advantage of quantum computing
edit: oh and also computers already have photographic memories
emotion and free thought can already be emulated albeit not very well, but soon when we can harness the power of those little qubits, we'll definitely be able to create emotions and free thought. brain uses chemicals as a way to transfer information. computers do that to in their processors except they dont use chemicals.Edited by ilikepancakez - 10/30/11 at 8:49am
