human intelligence is ultimately derived from algorithmic computation

Sir Roger Penrose may be extremely clever but I suspect he is answering the wrong question. I think I'll wait till the psychologists and the neurologists explain how the brain works in detail, because I'm not sure I fully understand what "derived from algorithmic computation" means in this context, whereas philosophy of science 101 explains quite clearly that we cannot construct a model of the world without induction as well as deduction - and we have no idea of how induction works at the neurone level.
