    How fast should a computer to be similar to human intelligence?

    How fast is Commander Data's (the pale android from Star Trek) CPU in term of our standard of measure (giga hertz).

    I'd like a computer that watch TV and later tells me "you know what, that was a crappy movie cuz Tara Reid can't act".

    How about; "good morning zulu, what a lovely day. seeing that you're stressed out, I am going to do the taxes for you and file it. and looks like the dog doesn't like Alpo, I'll order Iams. And since you need a lady for the night, I know just who to call".

    How about, "I don't really like to be called Peter. I want to be Shirley".


    Maybe few hundred tera-hertz?

    I'm not convinced that the ability of a computer to form its own opinions is dependent on processor speed in the first place. I think the speed is irrelevant.

    Conventional Megahertz convention does not really relate to Neural Networks very well unfortunately. Numbers of processes per second is pretty redundant when you have a huge number of neurons to share the load.

    Tara reid doesnt have to act. just be on screen is enough. :thumbsup:
    And its kind of impossible to say how fast a human brain would be (basically the same question that you asked) in ghz. lots i expect.

    Easy as pie. Just give some funding into physics studies!
    If they finally understand the quantum physics, we would never need to buy new processors ever again :p

    OMG I feel like beating my cat when I watched Alone In The Dark. All she did was tail Christian Slater around standing in the wrong spots and then at the end pretend to be a smart archaeologist who finally got mauled by aliens. And she got nothing over Paris Hilton.


    Back to ghz. How can we program a computer to like apples instead of oranges. Have emotional needs. Would the answer be never....?

    Computers are already much faster than the human brain, the problem is in knowing what intelligence is and in creating a program that can learn, write code for itself, and can create its own goals.

    A Ghz comparison is completely pointless, considering the fact that brains are clockless...

    garbad is right, it s not the speed taht matters, it s the programing. they are allready much faster as a human brain ( or could you do 1000 calculations a second ? )

    so i d say a very very good brain maybee comes close to a amiga 64, maybee :uhhuh:

    What are you guys talking about your brain is keeping track of every nerve you have . . . at the same time. Not many computers could do that, much less have a learning thought process that also decisions.

    Computers are slower than your brain, computers are just told what to do in an easier way.

    Regardless, I would argue that intelligence is an inherently parallel function, and current computers, neglecting ILP and TLP, are serial devices.

    Hertz Rent-A-Brain

    1.75 THz.

    Just kidding. The human brain thinks in both fast and slow modes (depending on the task that needs to be performed) and some brains can think faster than others and those brains may exceed their normal speeds if a situation requires it. Until they build a self-upgrading computer, you can't say for certain that a computer will ever be able to keep up with the speed of human intelligence (as we continue to expand our minds to make more powerful and advanced computers, it becomes apparent that our minds may well be infinite, at least collectively...no computer will ever be that powerful or that fast).

    It'll be the day it doensn't take millions of years to answer the Ultimate Question Of Life, The Universe And Everything.

    I totally second that. Calculations is one thing, making super fast complex decisions based on billions of information is something else. Besides, there are some people who can do 10 black sholes (not sure if that is the correct name - primarily for valuing options or stocks) equations per minute, no computer can do that yet and some autistic people are very fast as well when it comes to solving super complex problems.

    So how do you make parallel computers?

    Good question. If we knew the answer, it'd be a moot point :)

    please don't make such computers! who is going to help us after they take over the world? haven't you learnt anything from the terminator and the matrix??? :scared:

    Would you download yourself before you died?

    Emotional computers... no thanks.

    Same story with different view...
