Recently scientists in London designed a DNA Computer. The computer is made of DNA molecules which grows itself while calculating and can beat any supercomputer in solving practical problems of real life. This is a form of Quantum Universal Turing Machine or Quantum UTM. No practical UTM has not been made till today but this will be possible only with this DNA Molecules.
“Imagine a computer is searching a maze and comes to a choice point, one path leading left, the other right. Electronic computers need to choose which path to fol low first,” said researcher Ross King. “But our new computer doesn’t need to choose, for it can replicate itself and follow both paths at the same time, thus finding the answer faster.”
“This ‘magical’ property is possible because the computer’s processors are made of DNA rather than silicon chips.” “As DNA molecules are very small a desktop computer could potentially utilise more processors than all the electronic computers in the world combined and therefore outperform the world’s current fastest supercomputer, while consuming a tiny fraction of its energy” he told.
