Human’s comparison with Speed and Capacity of Information Processing

Q22. How are human compared with respect to speed and capacity of information processing?

Ans. Speed

Computers are much faster as compared to human beings. A computer can perform task in minute that may take days if performed manually. A modern computer can execute millions of instructions in one second.

High Storage Capacity

Computers can store a large amount of information in very small space. A CDROM of 4.7 inch diameter can store all the 33 volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica and will still have room to store more information. While human beings cannot store or process that large amount of information.
