How Are Human Brains Different From Computers?

Human Brains and Computers

Over the millennia, human has return up with uncountable inventions, every more ingenious than the last. Though, only now, because of computer interference, the mankind’s sentience itself is vulnerable. The PC has already begun to carry sway over numerous of the important functions that man has prided himself upon before.

Our lives are now reliant on upon the computer and anything it commands. It has been usually said that the computer cannot ever replace the human brain, for it is humans that created computers. Is there a good purpose why the computer must be lesser to humans? Is it always factual that the object cannot exceed its inventor? In what way can this be true? Even if we focus on a single creation of man, say the topic of this article, the computer, there are several means in which the computer has the edge over man. Let us start with simple calculation. The computer has the ability to assess problems that man can barely even imagine, let alone approach.

Even if a particular person will analyse the same problems as a computer, the computer can do it extreme way faster than he/she can perhaps achieve. Let us go one step further.

Say a human can calculate as quickly as a computer, can he/she reach a 100 percent rate of accuracy in his calculation? Why do we currently go over the human information entry into a computer when an error is noticed instead of checking the computer? It is because computers now possess the ability to hold no mistakes in its operation, where mankind has not advanced in this area in any noticeable margin. Why does the words ” human error” and ‘to err is human’ have become so prevalent in current years? It’s as the failings of the human race are becoming more and more exposed as the computer improvements and becomes more and more omnipotent. Maybe the computer is not really a competitor with the human brain but somewhat it’s ideal. After all, the computer is extreme greater to the human brain in those aspects where the brain is weakest.

It is possibly the attempt of the human brain to reach perfection after realising its individual weaknesses. If you think about it sensibly, do individuals who use the computer not use it increase their own creative input? Perhaps it is the unconscious attempt by us at reaching the following stage of evolution by our minds, generating a machine to do all the filthy work for us though we sit back and let our brains to focus on creating, or devastating, as the case may be. This machine is the recompense for the human brain’s weaknesses. The human brain has defects in abundance, yet it also has an edge over the computer. It has the capacity to make, unlike the computer, and it can work without full input, creating logical assumptions about problems. Person can work with a wide variety of methods, seeing new, more effective ways of handling problems.

The human brain is effortlessly stressed out by events and loses efficiency when exhausted. Emotions blur the human brain’s capability to make logical decisions, clear, even as soon as they are thrown before its eyes, and impair problem-solving capabilities. Age also has a devastating effect on the function of the human brain. Once senility sets in, the brain is of slight use to anybody, and the person turn out to be a liability. Computers are far from perfect themselves

Computers have only a limited capacity for learning and even this usually is not entirely accurate, for the computer lacks the common sense of the human brain, thus it cannot accurately realise its own mistake, if any. For example, a computer may send a $10 million tax bill to a person earning $30000 a year and not blink an eye, for if there is a bug in program, it cannot go in by itself and change it. It would not even realise that it was making a mistake until a human spots it and corrects it. Also, a computer cannot create, for creation requires a curiosity and the capacity for independent thought, which is something the computer will not have, at least in the near future. Lacking the ability to create, it cannot truly pose a threat to mankind, but once it does acquire this ability, it will then be set to take over the human brain.
