Scientists have designed an energy efficient biological supercomputer that can process information’s with super speed. This computer is able to proceed data at extremely speed because it can access parallel networks and information’s simultaneously. This model of biological supercomputer is small and at the same time supremely sustainable. The research team of Dan Nicolau from McGill University conducted the research that constructed the supercomputer. A recently published article summarized that this supercomputer is much smaller than the current supercomputers and also supremely efficient.
This model uses less energy and uses protein that is available in all cells of functionality. The research was published at the National Academy of sciences. Professor Nicolau stated that “We’ve managed to create a very complex network in a very small area.” Professor explained that he has been working with his son Dr Jr. and trying to implement the supercomputer for more than a decade. This research was also supported by his colleagues from Germany, Sweden and Netherlands. This dedicated team of researchers have designed and constructed the model .This biological supercomputer that is powered by adenosine triphosphate.
According to the research team, the system that they have designed mimics basic mathematical functionality but somehow manages to work at much minimum size. Most supercomputers are gigantic in size, however this one isn’t. Also because it is powered by the biological agents, this one works at far less energy. Surprisingly the size of the super computer is roughly same as of a book. Also as it is powered by the biological agents, it doesn’t get overheat. However, the potentiality of this supercomputer is immense according to the research team of the McGrill University .Professor Nicolau stated “Now that this model exists as a way of successfully dealing with a single problem, there are going to be many others who will follow up and try to push it further, using different biological agents, for example,”. Professor Nicolau further stated “One option for dealing with larger and more complex problems may be to combine our device with a conventional computer to form a hybrid device added. Right now we’re working on a variety of ways to push the research further.”
