Swiss man created computer from human brain

He arranged 16 slices of human brains into a digital neural network by making them talk through computer interfaces

The 16 slices operate together altough they are not biologically connected to each other

FinalSpark claims its Neuroplatform is the world's first online platform delivering access to biological neurons in vitro.

>Moreover, bioprocessors like this "consume a million times less power than traditional digital processors," the company says.

FinalSpark says its Neuroplatform is capable of learning and processing information, and due to its low power consumption, it could reduce the environmental impacts of computing.

In a recent research paper about its developments, FinalSpakr claims that training a single LLM like GPT-3 required approximately 10GWh — about 6,000 times greater energy consumption than the average European citizen uses in a whole year. Such energy expenditure could be massively cut following the successful deployment of bioprocessors.

The operation of the Neuroplatform currently relies on an architecture that can be classified as wetware: the mixing of hardware, software, and biology.

The main innovation delivered by the Neuroplatform is through the use of four Multi-Electrode Arrays (MEAs) housing the living tissue — organoids, which are 3D cell masses of brain tissue...interfaced by eight electrodes used for both stimulation and recording...

FinalSpark has given access to its remote computing platform to nine institutions to help spur bioprocessing research and development. With such institutions' collaboration, it hopes to create the world's first living processor.

    he's just allowed to take people's brains and hook them up to machines after they die? wtf is this shit.

      he claims the brains "were grown in a lab from human cells and manipulated to grow only into brain cells not forming rest of the human, it was never a person"

      should we believe this though?

      I have an alternative idea:
      he snuck a clueless guy into a van and nothing has been heard of this vanished person ever since

        the stem cells were probably coerced to grow into brain cells by putting them next to dead brain cells. we can't "hack" stem cells into doing whatever we want. they mostly just form into what they're around

        Although if you believe they actually complied with the deal, I have a bridge to sell you.

        Growing organoids isn't super new tech. You can buy ready-to-use kits to grow them:

    Does this work with animal brains? Why did he choose human brains? Was he just given a cadaver?

      it works with animal brains but it is too inefficient
      actually even a chimp is bad choice

      there is truly only two options: either human brain cells or crows and humans remain the better choice

        A chimp brain would be probably close performance wise to an i5-2500k, so yeah a really bad choice.

        To begin with you need to make an ideal environment for those cells. Not just nutritional, but neurochemical. Use a PID to keep everything balanced. Deliver dopamine hits for hitting new efficiency thresholds so it enjoys working hard for you. When you're not using it, put it to bed with some melatonin, seratonin and DMT for pleasant dreams.
