Our Brain

Is the human brain like a computer? We compute with or brain but a computer does it much better. Does a computer think? Artificial Intelligence solves problems, matches patterns and figures out complex question. Is that thinking? As humans, we have the ability to understand context.

A computer cannot tell when it is going wrong if it is not programmed into the algorithm it’s running. It’s hard, if not impossible for a computer to take a step back and reevaluate a situation that seems to be going wrong. A computer has no intuition. It doesn’t get the feeling when something isn’t right. A computer has no morals. Of course, neither do some people.

What about consciousness? Could a computer ever develop consciousness? It would have to be able to look at it’s actions from outside and question it’s motives. To be conscious is to step out and see yourself, to consider.
