Human Cognition

The current approach of trying to figure out what goes into making something intelligent doesn't seem to be having much success.

Instead of asking what it takes to make a mind, what if we asked what is missing from the human mind?
Such as:
+Constant attention
+Perfect memory
Other things that computers have that we don't?

If we want to replicate humans, we need to copy their flaws as well as their strengths.
