Virginia Dignum (@vdignum): Humans are not machines, nor is our brain a computer processing information. As in past eras, this metaphor reflects the most advanced thinking.

  2. all computers are information processors.
  3. conclusion (wrong): all entities that are capable of behaving intelligently are information processors.
