“A ‘biocomputer’ powered by human brain cells could be developed within our lifetime, according to Johns Hopkins University researchers who expect such technology to exponentially expand the capabilities of modern computing and create novel fields of study.

The team outlines their plan for ‘organoid intelligence’ today in the journal Frontiers in Science.

‘Computing and artificial intelligence have been driving the technology revolution, but they are reaching a ceiling,’ said Thomas Hartung, a professor of environmental health sciences at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Whiting School of Engineering who is spearheading the work. ‘Biocomputing is an enormous effort of compacting computational power and increasing its efficiency to push past our current technological limits.'”
