The final goal of membrane computing is to build biocomputers and the direct membrane algorithm can be transplanted to the biocomputers directly, which is more meaningful from this perspective.
"The fact that molecules are very cheap and that we have now shown the biocomputer's calculations work leads me to believe that biocomputers have the prerequisites for practical use within ten years."
They introduce a new model for securing computer systems that changes the traditional Neumann architecture and also cover the latest technologies, such as virtualization, cloud computing, Internet computing, and biocomputers. They make extensive use of diagrams to illustrate the material, illustrating the actual digital circuits for many key elements.
