Our brains are more than Turing Complete

I was listening to a lecture on computer functions and abstractions. A Turing complete computer is able to compute anything. That is, anything that is computable can be computer by a Turing complete computer. However, what even a Turing complete computer lacks is abstraction. Namely, you have to rebuild a file every time you want … Continue reading Our brains are more than Turing Complete

Technique Thursday: Computational Modeling

With neuroscience and computer science bleeding into one another, there are a number of ways that computer programming can help in understanding the brain. This can be achieved via computational modeling. Computational modeling is the intersection of math, physics, and computer science that is used to study the behavior of complex systems via computer models. … Continue reading Technique Thursday: Computational Modeling
