First, a serious exposition on the subject. While there is still a lot of work to be done, these things are destined to be more powerful than you might have imagined.

I already suspected how powerful biocomputers could be. Of course, petabytes of memory in DNA molecules is a long time known and speculated, but organic processor is something that I suspected it could carry on massive parallel computations, much more powerful than today's computers based on cycles.

Very interesting videos, only if there wasn't one thing: human experiments on living beings. Otherwise, I'd fully support the potential advance.
There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.

There is always risk with every reward.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
