“Living Computer” by Scott N.

Have you ever thought of a living computer? My idea comes from that thought. A problem has risen over the past few years. Every few years or so, transistors in a computer get smaller, so we can fit more transistors in, but lately, the transistors have been getting too small. Now you might be thinking, “That’s good, right?” Well, not exactly, since they are so small, the transistors start to, “leak” electricity from one transistor to another (a solution had been developed to stack the transistors, but you would have to use a high powered oven, and it takes significantly much more time) . So what if we had a different kind of computer? Something that we know has two states of electricity (on or off, ones and zeroes, etc.) and doesn’t leak. It’s something we use 24/7 for our entire lives. What if we used neurons? This could get lost in translation, it is not a brain in a computer (not artificial intelligence) but using neurons as transistors in a computer. Now, what if those neurons die? Lately, scientists have been able to develop a substance that is called m22, which is a cryo-protectant, designed for human organ freezing without destroying the organ, it can be used to bring the nerve cells to an extreme cold, without killing any cells. Some people might make the point that you can’t run electricity through frozen things, but it’s just the opposite, it runs even better.

    To sum things up, transistors are getting smaller and start leaking, and stacking transistors might come up with problems, so what if we used frozen neurons instead?
