I found this image in while "window shopping" on Amazon, in Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach (3rd Edition)

I thought it was fascinating that I may be nearly smart as a super computer. Maybe.

The minimal theoretical processing power of the brain has been reached a few years back with IBM's Blue Gene supercomputer and the maximal theoretical processing power might be reached 2 decades from now.
But even though the processing power is obviously indispensable, you also need an adequate software, the AI. That is the truly interesting part and there has been many amazing developments in that area in the last few decades.

Some stuff can't be masured with CPU speed.
Like recognition systems -- at some point the complexity of code to recognize some image is beaten by human brain.

I still doubt that CPUs will reach the brain capacity.

The brain is able to switch from context to context.
It is also able to use the same word with a different meaning each time it is used but in the same context.

The code for that would be hard to write.

He's right though, the brain isn't so much programmed like a computer, but it's hardware (if you will) is wired to handle all of our reactions and interactions. Our... logic gates, do not handle floating point math, and execute binary/trinary/whateveranary, but our "programing" is done at hardware level. Thus, it's no dip it's faster, what you'd have to do to make a machine even compete with us, is not program it, but wire it's hardware to do all the "thinking" without software...
