along this (similarly weak) reasoning, a transistor is a computer. so the AMD Epic Ryzen contains 19.2B computers. uh oh

No, transistor is like a single dendrite. It's more like logic blocks in fpga. But each real neuron is equivalent to several blocks.

Thanks for this comment, I was thinking the same thing but assumed I am just missing something obvious.
