Scientists drew inspiration from the body’s power plants to create a stunningly energy efficient supercomputer.
As we reported earlier, a team of scientists from McGill University in Montreal has laid out a process for creating a ‘biological supercomputer’ using the very same mechanisms the cells in our body use to operate. According to a report from RT, the development could to stunning improvements in energy efficiency compared to traditional supercomputers.
The biggest problem with present-day supercomputers is their insatiable appetite for energy – many larger systems even require their own power plant to achieve a reasonable level of energy efficiency. The heat alone generated by most supercomputers is a problem, often requiring a built-in cooling system that consumes even more energy.
