Phillip,

>>>The reason that [Deep] Blue seems to have more "computing power" is in the programming. The most advanced computer on earth(that I have heard of) has FAR less computing power that one of our neurons, many many neurons make up our brain. With such a minimal ammount of computing power to work with, we must program our computers to be optomised for tasks(for example, chess).>>P: The line between doing something and understanding something is not a line at all, it is a gradual fading of mental(computing) power. H: On what basis do you make this assertion? P: It is shown through nature that the more computing power something has, the more complicated its programming is; its intelience increases as a result of this. I have never seen or heard of anyone trying to disprove this assertion. Thus, it is a valid if only because of the fact that it has not been disproven. That is the basic principle behind what I said, there is more, but that sums it up fairly well.
