Bio Computers


  • The first steps towards developing an "Organoid Intelligence" that will produce "Biocomputers" have recently been made by scientists.


  • The study of "organoid intelligence," like artificial intelligence, aims to develop autonomous decision-making organoids.
  • Brain organoids are 3D cultures of human stem cell-derived brain tissue created in the laboratory. They accurately depict a variety of morphological and functional aspects of an evolving human brain.
  • In the end, researchers want to build "biocomputers" that are just lab-grown brain cultures connected to actual sensors and input/output devices.


  • These biocomputers can process complex information similarly to human brains.
  • These organoids can shed light on the biological underpinnings of human learning, memory, and cognition.

They can support the creation of new medications and the analysis of the pathophysiology behind degenerative conditions like Parkinson's disease and microcephaly.
