I would make a Multivac comparison but I wonder how many people would get it.

It took a couple billion years to make a protein, then another couple billion to make conscious life. I don't think we can do it in a million years, let alone the past couple thousand.
Cool stuff though. Our bodies are much more efficient than our technology, so why not mix the two?

lol...i feel like im watching a episode of Naked Science or something on NGC lol...i just find it hard to believe some stuff yall do..but i wont get into it..lol..i have enough fun laughing at naked science

Well the day they try and implement this kind of technology into a robot is the day i buy a chain gun, a butt load of c-4, an M-17, and an EMP type device that will come out in the "near" future

Seriously, if they ever try to make a conscious computer that over sees anything Skynet will become a reality.

Make a CPU that can make itself?

On the other side this is interesting but i find quantum computing more interesting.

Listening to some of the people on these boards make me realize how inundated the world is with ignorance.

DNA is a molecule. It cannot think, it cannot act. The only way DNA can do jack **** is if it's given a suitable environment in which it can 1) replicate and 2) perform protein synthesis. And I highly doubt a circuit board would provide that ideal environment, which would have to mimic that provided by a cell. Hell, scientists don't even know how to give a strand of DNA a suitable artificially created environment even when they're trying. So to think that this circuitboard is going to jump out of the computer and start wreaking havoc amongst its creators is just down right idiocy.

At this point, DNA is just as animated as a carbon nanotube so put away your pitch forks and torches.

They made a computer that runs on DNA, which was thousands of times more powerful, more energy efficient, and thousands of times smaller than anything we have today or coming in the next 3 years.... and they did this years ago. The problem is:


Quote:
As of now, the DNA computer can only perform rudimentary functions, and it has no practical applications. "Our computer is programmable, but it's not universal," said Shapiro. "There are computing tasks it inherently can't do." The device can check whether a list of zeros and ones has an even number of ones. The computer cannot count how many ones are in a list, since it has a finite memory and the number of ones might exceed its memory size. Also, it can only answer yes or no to a question. It can't, for example, correct a misspelled word.
Quote:
While a desktop PC is designed to perform one calculation very fast, DNA strands produce billions of potential answers simultaneously. This makes the DNA computer suitable for solving "fuzzy logic" problems that have many possible solutions rather than the either/or logic of binary computers. In the future, some speculate, there may be hybrid machines that use traditional silicon for normal processing tasks but have DNA co-processors that can take over specific tasks they would be more suitable for.
Quote:
In terms of speed and size, however, DNA computers surpass conventional computers. While scientists say silicon chips cannot be scaled down much further, the DNA molecule found in the nucleus of all cells can hold more information in a cubic centimeter than a trillion music CDs. A spoonful of Shapiro's "computer soup" contains 15,000 trillion computers. And its energy-efficiency is more than a million times that of a PC.

Why is my CPU eating my GFX CARD? HALP
I can see it now... these processors will eventually evolve and take over mankind...
Oh well, theres worse ways to go.

No, not these processors. The generation after them, however, just may. I read somewhere about some country is trying to clone the human brain for use in computers and bots; serious endeavor as well, if I remember right it was ~ 20 million invested.
