Although the brain isn't fast in comparison to computer hardware systems we have today, it has several key abilities that computers don't currently have. The brain supports heavy parallel processing capabilities, which means we (unlike current computer systems) can, in mere seconds, recognize complex patterns within images. Our brain and visual systems recognize shapes, colors, situational context and extremely fine details better than almost any other cognizant process we perform.
