Nano-Biological Computing – Quantum Computer Alternative!



you are watching ColdFusion TV hi welcome to another ColdFusion video in this video we'll take a look at a new type of computing that are set to rival the legendary quantum computer let's get straight into it but first with a bit of background understanding from phones and tablets to pcs and gaming consoles to supercomputers and smartwatches computers are everywhere and you're using one right now the thing is all of these types of computers function the same way these computers use machine language fundamentally composed of ones and zeroes to tell the computer what to do like a written language the computer reads word by word or instruction set by instruction set until it understands what to do it then executes it and moves on to the next step we call this kind of computer a classical computer so you might be asking if my computer can only do one task at a time how am i running multiple things at once well in basic terms a computer CPU is actually still doing one thing at a time or one instruction set at a time but switching between them really quickly roughly 2.5 billion times a second for a 2.5 gigahertz single-core a single-threaded CPU so it actually just seems like it's doing a lot of things at once ok so that's all fine for running software and things of that sort but what if the requirements for your use were much more than that what if you needed vastly more competing horsepower the kind that allows you to solve complex equations with almost no bounds things like cryptography or complex simulations of things within our world advanced mathematical models or just many other applications that we couldn't even dream of today these kind of problems can be described and categorized as taking exponentially more time to solve with increasing complexity classical computers can't do such things very well the closest thing that we've gotten to is many classical computers slap together and given the title of a supercomputer what we need is a computer that can actually solve many problems at the same time what we need is then called a parallel computer all right so you might be thinking look I've heard of this parallel computing thing before wasn't that what quantum computers were supposed to do this is correct however the research is in the groundbreaking experiment I'm about to show you state that the quantum computer hasn't been proved to be practical from a fabrication and operational perspective for example a quantum computer has to be very close to absolute zero in temperature to even function these hurdles may be overcome in the future but for now there needs to be a better solution this is where the bio-computer comes in of which a brand new feasible solution has just been discovered at Lund University in Sweden the results have been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the bio computing approach uses less than 1% of the energy used by current electronic transistors the result can see the power of today's supercomputers fit into the form factor of a laptop without absurd amounts of power and heat most of you know that nano means very very small I'd like to start by just saying how small and if you imagine you take the whole earth and reduce it enough to become as large as a football so that's about 50 million times smaller and then you imagine you do the same thing one more time you take the football and take it down another 20 or 50 million times then you are the size of what you call a nanoparticle something that is on this size range of a few thousand atoms or so a ball of material now why are we interested in this the the main reason sometimes the reason is that not making things small that's just the point so for example if you try to build faster and more powerful computers that's what you want you want to make smaller transistors that you can pack many of them onto a small space that can talk quickly to each another and that's the whole point so what exactly is the solution as it turns out the solution has been around for a very long time in the form of a protein called myosin part of our muscle tissue you're actually using myosin right now in your eyes to watch this video my Osen can be thought of as tiny molecular motors converting chemical energy into mechanical energy the swedish bio computer uses the myosin to guide protein filaments along artificial paths researcher Heine linker explains quote in simple terms it involves building a network of nano based channels that give specific traffic regulations for protein filaments the solution in the network corresponds to the answer of a mathematical question and many molecules can find their way through the network at the same time end quote so rather than having bulky computers working in tandem performing multiple simultaneous computations you have a nano scale molecular motor doing the same thing this means much smaller and more powerful computers this bio computer system is much easier and less expensive to build than a quantum computer mainly because some of the crucial components that are found in this computer are found in nature the research team say that the bio computers are likely to be a decade away from production here's another quote from the researcher linker quote the fact of the molecules are very cheap and that we have now shown that the bio computers calculations work leads us to believe that bio computers have the prerequisites for practical use within ten years the research team also states that existing programming algorithms can be used on this system with some optimization okay so we're almost at the end of the video but let's quickly look at the system in action you're looking at it right now the numbers at the bottom represent solves solutions to an equation as you can see the system is finding many solutions at the same time so of course at the moment this system looks a little slow and rudimentary but this study was just a proof-of-concept showing that the idea is sound allowing researchers to have enough evidence to foresee this being a viable alternative to quantum computers putting it another way this can be seen as a Wright brothers moment in parallel computing much like comparing that first measly 450 meter flight that eventually gave the feasible path for all modern aircraft so what can we make of all of this while quantum computing may be the holy grail for the long run replacing the operating realm of supercomputers this proof of concept of a practical easy to manufacture low-energy low-cost parallel computing system may mean that our desktops and future laptops and even possibly smartphones could see the power of what we call a supercomputer today ultimately only time will tell if this method truly becomes all that the scientists and researchers say it well but regardless it's going to be an interesting decade for a final further thought combining the former with new scientific efforts on graphene computing in which graphene transistors are ready clocking 427 gigahertz it looks like Moore's law could happily live on for a while yet anyway that's the end of the video thanks for watching guys hopefully you could take something away from that feel free to give this video a thumbs up if you liked it subscribe if you're new definitely do that this has been to gogo you've been watching cold fusion gears guys have a good one and I'll catch you again soon for the next video cold fusion is he thinking you

    From Wikipedia- All biological organisms have the ability to self-replicate and self-assemble into functional components. The economical benefit of bio-computers lies in this potential of all biologically derived systems to self-replicate and self-assemble given appropriate conditions.

    Two words…Artificial Intelligence.

    Brother, I hope you never stop making videos, none of your videos are very long, but they are packed full of good accurate information delivered within that very short attention span that we humans tend to have these days.
    Keep it up 🙂

    Are you into disinformation or do just consider most people stupid?  No computer reads instructions until it understands what to do!  This appears to be an attempt to circumvent any understanding of the people watching this video of the logical – logic gate method in which computers have been employed by people (PEOPLE) to arrive at an answer based on Boolean (mathematical) steps!  Computers as of yet have NEVER understood ANYTHING!  Quantum computers are very, very different but they also don't understand ANYTHING!  These dim witted or compromised by the N.W.O. idiots can't explain tis any better because they are just not up to it!  Go find someone smarter to explain it!  This method of computing is absolutely unrelated to Quantum Entanglement!  They just want to control the narrative!  Idiots!

    "it uses a protein called myosin"

    so it means we can play games with the same quality our eyes work when we perceive "reality".

    the downside is, KILL ALL JE— i mean humans, so that it can get more myosin lel 😛
