Cortical Organoids
« on: June 30, 2020, 07:56:33 PM »
If anything Cortical Organoids may give us some pause as to what medium AGI might be most robust in. Because chip technology, so far, is just 2D it constrains the number of connections possible. The chip hardware also uses buses and switches to wire transistors which just takes away real estate on the die for information processing. An organic model that can connect itself three-dimensionally and execute computations in parallel would be a striking difference in what can be done with AGI.

Here's an interesting article of Cortical Organoids growing into neurons and glia:

Here's another example of Cortical Organoids, growing brains in space:
