When asked what a biological computer
looks like, Keinan laughs.
Although they have spent the past 20 years developing individual components and prototypes of biological computers
, bio-computers today still differ significantly from their counterparts made of silicon, and bio-engineers still face several major obstacles.
It is not inconceivable that biological computers
will open new vistas in computation.
London, May 8 ( ANI ): Researchers have suggested that magnet-making bacteria may be used for building biological computers
of the future.
It is a world of organ transplants, biological computers
and artificial intelligences.
Professor Andrew Adamatzky, Director of the Centre for Unconventional Computing at UWE Bristol, who will lead on the digital coordinated mechanisms, added: We will produce buildings which are biological computers
These primitive networks could be the key to building a new generation of biological computers
, say researchers.
Although still a long way off, the team suggest that these biological logic gates could one day form the building blocks in microscopic biological computers
