Swiss Company Unveils World's First "Living Computer" Made from Human Brain Tissue

release time:2024-06-20Author source:SlkorBrowse:3325

Recently, a Swiss company named FinalSpark launched the world's first "living computer" made from human brain tissue, potentially revolutionizing computing and energy consumption. This living computer is composed of 16 brain organoids, which are clusters of brain cells cultivated in the laboratory.

These organoids communicate with each other like computer chips. They send and receive information through neurons, functioning like circuits but consuming significantly less energy.

This biocomputer could potentially transform energy-intensive data centers. Living neurons consume nearly a million times less energy than modern digital processors.

Fred Jordan, co-CEO of FinalSpark, stated that the concept of a living computer is widely used in science fiction, but there hasn't been much practical research until now. Organoids are tiny, self-organizing three-dimensional cultures made from stem cells. Brain organoids are taught to complete tasks through dopamine rewards, similar to how the brain learns.

In addition to consuming less energy, living computers offer functionalities that traditional computers cannot achieve. When the brain learns, its hardware changes, creating new synaptic connections. This feature is called "wetware," blending software and hardware components. By contrast, software on standard computers runs on fixed hardware.
