When you know a human brain only requires 20 watts, you realize how inefficient our computers are.

@e4rache For certain tasks, maybe, but consider a RPI 3 that uses max 4W and can do enormous calculations instantly, where even a trained human would take hours: I think we're not doing too bad ;)

@Matter The human brain has not evolved to do calculations so it's not optimized at all to do that sort of tasks. Imagine how efficient it would be if it was designed to do so.

@e4rache @Matter

Our progress, test and release schedule though is pretty damn long considering the ability to breathe air could be called our species "hello world"

@e4rache Our brain is evolving for some millions years now.. Computers, only for a few decades! 😆
