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!

So, yes human intelligence can be analog or even non

You might also read Goedel, Escher, Bach by
Hofstrader to get a better grasp of human and
Artificial Intelligence.
