I have read three questions about algorithms and their relation to the human brain.
Two recent ones:
Question on Godel's Remark on Algorithmic Nature of Mind
And an old one:
They made me wonder. Can a physical process be replaced by its algorithm-based computation in the first place? So not only in relation to brains but to general physical processes in general. What does it even mean to say they are identical? They are clearly not identical when their physical Nature is considered.
Any physical process can be represented by a set of parallel or series operations on parallel or series data. The computer can do this in faster and more sophisticated ways as time grows. The question still remains if this somehow is identical to the process itself. How? For sure the computed process of color perception doesb't see. Or does it?
