The three essential properties of every material are these:

1. What kind of atom makes up that material? 2. How are the atoms in the material arranged? 3. How are the atoms in the material bonded together? (Trefil, p. 239)

Atoms make up everything we can see, therefore every material, and atoms have very different properties within themselves, as well as having different ways of being arranged or of bonding together, all of which affect the physical and chemical properties

250-52). The chips that have been discussed are used in computers to store information, and use that information to perform multitudes of tasks, including millions of calculations very rapidly. That is what computers do well. They use the “on” and “off” switch properties of transistors to accomplish information storage and problem calculations. This makes computers seem magical to people, due to their speed, and people began to think of computers as being artificially intelligent, with actual intelligence comparable to humans without being human (Trefil, p. 253-55). IBM worked for years to create a supercomputer that could compete with the reigning world chess champion, Garry Kasparov. The two played some famous games, with Deep Blue able to finally win a game. Now the programmers studied and studied Kasparov’s chess strategies in his formal matches and then designed Deep Blue intentionally with Kasparov in mind. The computer had no intelligence whatsoever, but did what the programmers told it to do, and could “see” more moves ahead than Kasparov, which allowed it to finally win. It did not achieve the function or intelligence of Kasparov’s amazing brain, however (Ron Stevens). Computers generally operate in a linear sequence of operations, but can do those sequential operations very rapidly. A human brain operates in multitudes of directions and sequences simultaneously
