Swiss Innovators Reveal Biocomputer with 16 Human Mini-Brains

Do you remember sci-fi movie scenes where humans seamlessly connect with computers and create a perfect symbiosis of man and machine? It was once just a far-fetched idea. Now, it is inching closer to reality. Thanks to a research from Switzerland. Swiss scientists have developed a biocomputer that utilizes living brain cells and not traditional electronic circuits. It is a pioneering technology and promises a leap in computing power. It is also believed to offer a reduction in energy consumption.

Researchers have long been trying to develop such artificial intelligence systems which can replicate processing power of human brains. However, advanced AI systems require enormous amounts of energy and this could pose environmental challenge. Biocomputer is a revolutionary concept and utilizes the efficiency of human brain cells. It also lowers the energy footprint of computing.

The biocomputer is a fusion of technology and biology. It paves the path for a future where machines operate with the efficiency of living organisms. Details of the study have lately been published in the journal Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence. The research marks a significant step towards sustainable and environmentally friendly computing.

Swiss biocomputing startup FinalSpark is at the forefront of the innovation. It has developed a platform that provides continuous access to 16 human brain organoids. It is the world’s first living processor. The bioprocessors are composed of neurons and these can learn as well as process information. It is claimed to consume a million times less power compared to the traditional digital processors. Hence, environmental impact will be reduced drastically.

FinalSpark co-founder Dr. Fred Jordan said they believe that such an ambitious goal can be achieved through international collaborations.
