Hi, Very interesting question. I have always been of the opinion that computers are like cars - very efficient at what they are designed to do, but not at all good at going over hurdles with a human being. Dr. Howard Gardner has looked at human intelligence carefully. He suggests many different forms of human intelligence. Several of these are non- computational in the computer science sense! http://chiron.v aldosta.edu/whuitt/files/gardner.html So, yes human intelligence can be analog or even non computational. You might also read Goedel, Escher, Bach by Hofstrader to get a better grasp of human and Artificial Intelligence. David
