A human brain is CAPABLE of much much faster speeds but i doubt people are quite as fast. Also there is no real way to measure it.

A computer can't think for it's self (although neither can some people), it has to be set commands. No processor will ever be able to compare to the human brain.

A computer can only do what a human tells it to do; and lets hope it stays that way or we're going to need the Terminator...

Agreed. I really do not like the idea of artificial intelligence.

For reference on the TV show on discovery which I think is called, "Human Body Pushing the Limits" they did an episode on the human brain. Showing how the brain works during periods of extreme stress such as firefighters in the middle of a firestorm in a forest.

Their estimate was that the peak of human intelligence could do the equivalent of 3 trillion calculations per second when you consider everything the human brain is doing, (monitoring bodily functions, taking in visual information, analyzing said information, subconscious thought, etc.)

Not sure how accurate that is though.

even artificial intelligence systems have to be programmed...and even then, they're limited to what they're programmed to do. you cant teach it shit in real time.

we too are programmed. from the day we are born we are being taught...taught to eat, to speak, to walk, to read, to learn. deep huh? i'm going to get another beer...this could get interesting...haha.

no but robots/AI things have to be plugged in and data has to be uploaded. you cant teach it just by talking to it/doing things with it.

^ I think they have come close to that they have things that will learn what you do and react, but only to a certain point.

they don't have to be plugged in. they can run on batteries, and perhaps some day on some other types of fuel...like food and water perhaps? voice recognition is in its' infancy, but you still teach it to understand you when you talk, so even at this early stage we are teaching computers by talking to them either by voice recognition or other input means like keyboards.

The equivalent of George Monks' brain is about 10Mhz.

The average human... well I'm not really sure about that.
