Computers Made Out of DNA, Slime and Other Strange Stuff


[link to www.wired.com]


Everybody knows a computer is a machine made of metal and plastic, with microchip cores turning streams of electrons into digital reality.

A century from now, though, computers could look quite different. They might be made from from neurons and chemical baths, from bacterial colonies and pure light, unrecognizable to our old-fashioned 21st century eyes.

Far-fetched? A little bit. But a computer is just a tool for manipulating information. That's not a task wedded to some particular material form. After all, the first computers were people, and many people alive today knew a time when fingernail-sized transistors, each representing a single bit of information, were a great improvement on unreliable vacuum tubes.

When it comes to storing information, hard drives don’t hold a candle to DNA. Our genetic code packs billions of gigabytes into a single gram. A mere milligram of the molecule could encode the complete text of every book in the Library of Congress and have plenty of room to spare. All of this has been mostly theoretical — until now. In a new study, researchers stored an entire genetics textbook in less than a picogram of DNA — one trillionth of a gram — an advance that could revolutionize our ability to save data.

In A Computable Universe, Zenil and others take the idea of computation as an abstract process, capable of being performed on any system that can store and manipulate information, to its logical extreme. Computers might not only be made from chemicals and cells and light, they say; the universe itself could be a computer, processing the information of which our everyday experiences -- and everything else -- are composed.

This is a tricky idea -- if the universe is computed, what's the computer? [link to www.wired.com]

Brits Approach (True) Speed of Light Over Fiber Cable
The standard line is that fiber optic networks transfer data at the speed of light. But in reality, light travels about 31 percent slower through fiber optical cables than it does through a vacuum. But that’s changing. Researchers at University of Southampton in England have found a way to build cables that work at 99.7 percent of the speed of light in a vacuum.

This is the latest of several recent breakthroughs in fiber optics research. For examples, scientists at AT&T Labs-Research announced a new record in speed/distance through standard fiber optic cables. And a DARPA-backed team at IBM has found a way to cut the energy use of short-distance fiber optics for supercomputing while doubling the speed.

Achieve Immortality Through DNA Preservation
Every single person's DNA is unique and incomparable. Once we die, our DNA starts to decay until eventually its structure is gone forever. Even if you have kids, your DNA sequence will only remain as fragments in your children. Don't worry if this thought distresses you; really, who has never thought that it's a serious disgrace that there is only one you in the world? Who has never fantasized about the possibility of being cloned or regenerated in the future?

Half a Million DVDs of Data Stored in Gram of DNA
Paleontologists routinely resurrect and sequence DNA from woolly mammoths and other long-extinct species. Future paleontologists, or librarians, may do much the same to pull up Shakespeare’s sonnets, listen to Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech, or view photos. Researchers in the United Kingdom report today that they’ve encoded these works and others in DNA and later sequenced the genetic material to reconstruct the written, audio, and visual information.

The new work isn’t the first example of large-scale storage of digital information in DNA. Last year, researchers led by bioengineers Sriram Kosuri and George Church of Harvard Medical School reported that they stored a copy of one of Church’s books in DNA, among other things, at a density of about 700 terabits per gram, more than six orders of magnitude more dense than conventional data storage on a computer hard disk. Now, researchers led by molecular biologists Nick Goldman and Ewan Birney of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in Hinxton, U.K., report online today in Nature that they’ve improved the DNA encoding scheme to raise that storage density to a staggering 2.2 petabytes per gram, three times the previous effort.

Re: BREAKING - Computers Made Out of DNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!​!!!!!!!!!!!!
a dual core processor functions as 2 separate CPU's to use and store info (think left and right hemis of the brain) in parallel. The wall the defines them in this context is the corpus callosum. it allows the two hemi's of the brain to communicate with each other. The capacity of its range is determined by HOW MANY CONNECTORS are attached to each half of the brain. If you increase these, you will have better communication. (you may have noticed that folks who are ambidextrous or left handed are better at this as society has forced many of them to use both hands by default)
you can do this yourself by FORCING your non dominate hand to perform functions that it typcally does not handle. (ie: if you are right handed, try drawing simple pictures with your left hand. Caution, if not used to this, this task WILL give you a headache)
If you can continue this, then according to Amdahl's law, any part of the processor you improve, will overall improve the ENTIRE SYSTEM!
