Contributed by Marco Garcia Baturan.

1. Brain: Functioning always, in a loop. GL3: Also.
2. Brain: Has a memory. GL3: Also.
3. Brain: Increases neuron connections. GL3: Increases the number of concepts and rules.
4. Brain: Eliminates neuron connections. GL3: Eliminates least used concepts and rules.
5. Brain: Has a sensory memory (14 elements during 0,1 seconds). GL3: Concrete concepts.
6. Brain: Has a long term memory. GL3: Also.
7. Brain: Has a semantic memory (giving meaning). GL3: Has abstract concepts.
8. Brain: Has a procedural memory (pedaling, walking, talking. GL3: Has response rules.
9. Brain: Episodic memory (the sense of time: past present, future). GL3: Represents situations and actions by response rules.
10. Brain: Learns from its experiences. GL3: Also.
11. Brain: Has a biographic memory. GL3: The accumulation of rules is its store of experiences.
12. Brain: Is associative. GL3: Also.
13. Brain: regulates itself. GL3: Adjusts itself.
14. Brain: Has cortical columns. GL3: Generates the equivalent in is file of memories.
15. Brain: Suffers a natural selection of its neurons. GL3: Increases or lowers the value of a rule just used.
16. Brain: Has a body for all its life. GL3: Can adapt itself to any machine.
17. Brain: Sleeps. GL3: Also.
18. Brain: Imagines. GL3: Also.
19. Brain: Has instincts. GL3: Also.
20. Brain: uses emotions. GL3: Emotions do not seem necessary for a household robot.
21. Brain: Has a very large memory. GL3: Has a memory of only 20000 concepts and 20000 rules.
