"Biocomputers" are computers powered by human brain cells. Scientists insist that the technology for creating these devices will be developed soon.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University state that the invention and continued use of "biocomputers" will expand the possibilities of modern computing and open up new, previously unexplored areas for research. "Computing and artificial intelligence have been the driving force behind the technological revolution, but they have reached their limit," said Johns Hopkins University professor Thomas Hartung, who leads work on the latest devices. He emphasised, "Biocomputers are a chance to overcome our current technological limitations and open a way to study how the human brain works."
Thomas Hartung has been assembling brain cells into functional organoids, i.e., unique structures, since 2012. Each organoid contains about 50,000 small cells needed to build a biocomputer. The scientist claims: "The brain is still unmatched by modern computers." So, even though computers process information and perform calculations faster than humans, the human brain is superior to AI in making creative and logical decisions.
