A Subway Named Turing
The Tweedle twins and I were straphanging on the New York City subway. Delia Tweedle was universally known as Dee, so her brother had inevitably become Dum. Even though his real name was Seymour. As usual they were interrupting each other. "Well, if the universe is algorithmic, then strong AI" "Don't be pedantic, Dee, what you mean is computers that think" "Must be possible in principle." "Why?" I said. "If our universe is algorithmic" "You could set up a computer to simulate it" "Which would therefore simulate everything in it, including us having this conversation," Dee concluded. "You realize that if you're right, then a sufficiently complex subway system could become intelligent?" I said. "It would think rather s-l-o-w-l-y...but it would still be able to think." "That's dumb," Dee exclaimed. "A subway can't think." "Maybe not. But a subway can compute, according to a fascinating article I've just read in the latest issue of "Eureka." It was written by Adam Chalcraft and Michael Greene, and it's about the computational abilities of train sets." "You mean TOY train sets? Rails and points and tunnels with sheep painted on their sides?"

From the "The world's first brain prosthesis - an artificial hippocampus - is about to be tested in California. Unlike devices like cochlear implants, which merely stimulate brain activity, this silicon chip implant will perform the same processes as the damaged part of the brain it is replacing.
The prosthesis will first be tested on tissue from rats' brains, and then on live animals. If all goes well, it will then be tested as a way to help people who have suffered brain damage due to stroke, epilepsy or Alzheimer's disease."
This brings up the key question that this article will focus on - Is the Brain a Turing Complete Machine?
Description of a Turing Machine

Alan Turing was a mathematician and logician in 20th century. He is often considered the pioneer of computer science as we know it today. He helped the British Government crack German codes during World War II. His world-changing contribution to society was a Turing Machine.

    The simulator
    This Turing machine simulator was created by Wendy Myrvold at the University of Victoria for instructional purposes. The input is very close to a "machine code" as the intent of the simulator is to consolidate the understanding of Universal Turing Machines, how questions about Turing machines can be encoded as a string, the Halting Problem, and other undecidable problems. A more friendly input format could be considered if your intent is merely to program Turing machines.
    Downloading the source code
    You need the source code which is: tm.c
    The old TM simulator only permitted you to test one input at a time which was quite annoying if you want to extensively test your TM programs for correctness. The new TM simulator new_tm.c permits you to have multiple inputs. Each input is terminated with a -1.
    Compile this with your favorite "C" compiler. I use the "gcc" compiler so I type:

    The properties of Turing’s famous ‘universal machine’ has long sustained functionalist intuitions about the nature of cognition. Here, I show that there is a logical problem with standard functionalist arguments for multiple realizability. These arguments rely essentially on Turing’s powerful insights regarding computation. In addressing a possible reply to this criticism, I further argue that functionalism is not a useful approach for understanding what it is to have a mind. In particular, I show that the difficulties involved in distinguishing implementation from function make multiple realizability claims untestable and uninformative. As a result, I conclude that the role of Turing machines in philosophy of mind needs to be reconsidered.

    Turing Machines and Lambda Calculus
    One of the surprising results from mathematical analysis of computation (generally credited independently to Alan Turing and Alonzo Church) is that a very simple machine of the von Neuman variety (or of any one of many similar designs, including for example Conway's ingenious Game of Life, a cellular automaton popular nowadays as a computer screen saver) is capable of computing anything which we know any way at all of computing. For example, it is quite possible to build a machine of this sort with only one or two instructions (which perhaps respectively read two bits and store back the negated OR of them, and conditionally select one of two possible next instructions depending on the value of a given bit) which is quite capable of performing any computation we might want. Almost all the instructions contained in modern computers are logically unneccessary: They are included only to speed up specific common operations, such as addition. Turing's proof that a given machine is a Universal Turing Machine , capable of computing anything which can be computed at all, is quite simple in concept, reducing to showing that such a machine can be programmed to emulate perfectly any other machine which you can describe precisely, and hence can compute whatever the described machine could compute.

    Turing Machine simulator
    The simulator runs under MS-Windows (the archive contains a DOS version as well, but it has a really bad interface...). It enables you to create a "program" text file, which defines the transition table of a TM, and then run it (either step-by-step or continuously) on selected inputs. The model of TM simulated by this software differs from our basic model defined in class in two ways: it uses a two-way infinite tape (as the one defined in the second TIRGUL), and it doesn't allow the head to stay in its place (i.e. head move directions are only L/R). The software is pretty straightforward to use. After executing it, load some demo ".tur" file from the file menu, and see how it runs. The structure of program files (with suffix ".pro") is also very easy to understand. This format goes as follows - each transition Delta(oldstate,oldsymb)=(newstate,newsymb,d) of the TM should be represented by the single line:
    oldstate, newstate, oldsymb/newsymb,d
    The initial state is taken to be the first state on the first line of the program file. To define state s to be a final state, just put " :s " on a separate line.

    1.1 Neural networks in classification
    Neural networks can be used, for example, for classification tasks, telling whether an input pattern belongs to a specific class or not. It has been known for a long time that one-layer feedforward networks can be used to classify only patterns that are linearly separable-the more there are successive layers, the more complex the distribution of the classes can be. When feedback is introduced in the network structure, so that perceptron output values are recycled, the number of successive layers becomes, in principle, infinite. Is the computational power enhanced qualitatively? The answer is

    1. Introduction
    In discussing the functionality of a programming language, it is useful to determine whether the computational power of the language is equivalent to general purpose languages such as C, Lisp, and Java; or if its application is necessarily limited to special purposes, as are such languages as Microsoft Excel and SQL [Kiper et al 1997]. This determination can be made by demonstrating whether or not a language is Turing complete. Turing completeness implies that any computation that can be performed in the language can be performed on a Turing machine and vice versa. According to the Turing Thesis, any problem that is computable by any machine can be solved using a Turing machine [Linz 1996]. Thus, to show that a language is Turing complete, it is necessary to show only that the language has no less computational power than a Turing machine. Although commercial spreadsheet languages are not Turing complete, it is possible for a language using the spreadsheet programming paradigm to be Turing complete. One example is the spreadsheet-based visual programming language (VPL) Forms/3. This paper demonstrates Forms/3's Turing completeness with the following implementation of a Turing machine simulator.

    Briefly, a Turing machine is a pushdown automaton made more powerful by relaxing the last-in-first-out requirement of its stack. (Interestingly, a seemingly minor relaxation enables the Turing machine to perform such a wide variety of computations that it can serve as a model for the computational capabilities of all modern computer software.) More precisely, a Turing machine consists of:
