My sentence is
Human Brain - [word] Computer System
Human Brain - a [word] Computer System        will work as well

Now the problem is when talking about technology we use the word 'develop' and its derivatives. I'm comparing biological components with technology and I want a word to express a combination of meanings - 'light years ahead of current technology' and 'naturally evolved'.

  • You're not gonna get that in one word; you'll probably need something like "a highly developed biological computing system". – Hellion Jul 26 '15 at 16:34
  • @Hellion Yeah, that's what i planned to do if I didn't get the word. thanks for phrase though – Nick Warke Jul 26 '15 at 17:27
  • How are those sentences, even with [word] replaced by the word you seek? – Drew Jul 27 '15 at 0:34
  • @Drew It is actually my title, but titles too are sentences, no? :) – Nick Warke Jul 27 '15 at 16:01
  • Well, if you ask an AI to fill in the blank, you may not like the answer:-) – Phil Sweet Jun 22 '16 at 23:07

A supercomputer is

a computer with a high-level computational capacity compared to a general-purpose computer.

More broadly, it is a computer that is exceedingly better than other computers.

I think you can use this word in conjunction with biological to generate a good title that suits your needs. The title would be:

(The) Human Brain - A Biological Supercomputer

This suggests that the human brain is both more advanced than standard (technological) computers as well as biologically generated (or evolved).

Consider "Human brain, a transcendental computer system".

Definition: going beyond ordinary limits, idealistic; surpassing or superior to the natural plane of reality or knowledge; being beyond ordinary or common experience;

innate adjective 1. existing in one from birth; inborn; native 2. inherent in the essential character of something 3. originating in or arising from the intellect or the constitution of the mind...

Innate captures the natural quality requested, while "Computer System" already metaphorically implies that the human brain is highly developed.

  • Human Brain - innate Computer System
  • Human Brain - an innate Computer System
  • Human Brain - the innate Computer System

What about "a n²th Generation Computer System"?

I can also suggest "revolutionary"

"Human Brain - A Revolutionary Computer System."

  • constituting or bringing about a major or fundamental change. "A revolutionary new product" MW
  • "innovative" and "pioneering" are synonyms and might also fit.

  • Since we don't know when we will be able to achieve working artificial system with same computing power as brain, I don't think its wise to include a fixed number. Also 3rd generation is out-dated instead of being futuristic, but thank you for fast reply, to @Hellion too :) – Nick Warke Jul 26 '15 at 17:42
  • Maybe nth generation? – ab2 Jul 26 '15 at 23:43
  • @Centaurus: Shouldn't the superscript 2 be after the n? I like nsquared-th...much more apt than merely nth when referring to a human brain...or even a cat's brain. – ab2 Jul 27 '15 at 0:28
  • @ab2 I really don't know. But if you say so, I can change it. – Centaurus Jul 27 '15 at 0:44
  • 1
    @Centaurus: I think you have coined a new term. I have never seen nsquared-th or nthsquared. But I like it, especially in this context. Some terminazi will undoubtedly object if it does not exist. – ab2 Jul 27 '15 at 0:58

How about the word cutting-edge?
