SlashDotDotDot (1356809) writes "Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang, writing in the New York Times' "Wild Side" column, take a look at the differences in computing power between brains and computers. From the piece:

Inventor Ray Kurzweil, in his 2005 futurist manifesto "The Singularity Is Near," extrapolates current trends in computer technology to conclude that machines will be able to out-think people within a few decades. In his eagerness to salute our robotic overlords, he neglects some key differences between brains and computers that make his prediction unlikely to come true.
