OI is an emerging field where researchers are developing biological computing using 3D cultures of human brain cells (brain organoids) and brain-machine interface technologies.
The researchers write that OI research will allow for the exploration of individual neurodevelopmental disorders and revolutionize drug testing research.
Organoids share aspects of brain structure and function that play a key role in cognitive functions like learning and memory. The researchers acknowledge that ethical concerns must be considered as well.
Organoids would essentially serve as biological hardware and could one day be even more efficient than current computers running AI programs.MORE
