How To Build Sustainable Super Computer?

qa-featured

Hi

A biological computer is a computer constructed with parts of a body or a computer that uses fluids from our body. Yes, it is possible to build one such comp. that can be powered with the help of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). In this computer, instead of electrons, short strings of proteins move around in the circuit that are powered by ATP. As it uses proteins, it hardly becomes hot and hence additional cooling techniques are not required. Also, this model of bio-supercomputer is more sustainable as compared to the normal super computers.

The biological computer is intended to process data rapidly and precisely by means of parallel networks similar to what conventional electronics supercomputers do. It utilizes a chip which is 1.5 centimeters square with engraved channels that transfer short strings of proteins as an alternative to the usual electrons. The movements of the proteins are driven by adenosine triphosphate, a chemical that facilitates energy transfer among cells.

Researchers have constructed a biological supercomputer using nanotechnology, proteins, and a chemical that powers cells in everything from trees to people. According to scientists at McGill University, the said biological supercomputer is just the size of a book. It uses very less energy that’s why it runs cooler and more efficiently.

In May 2015, scientists at UC Santa Barbara reported that they were working on a circuit intended to mimic or imitate the human brain running about 100 artificial synapses. On the other hand, although it imitates a living brain, it doesn’t use biological components. Scientists at the McGill University call adenosine triphosphate the “juice of life”.
