For one thing, it depends upon the actual speed of processing. A fast serial processor could solve a problem more quickly than a slow parallel processor. 4 Parallel and serial information-processing architectures. Boxes indicate modules or places where computations take place. Arrows indicate the ﬂow of information as inputs and outputs between modules. 26 • Artificial Psychology really depends on the speed with which those steps can get executed. Human neurons are limited to firing or sending off an electrical signal at about one thousand times a second.
