Scientists at Johns Hopkins University have revealed a new area of research named “organoid intelligence” which aims to create “biocomputers” using structures that simulate human organs. These miniature models of human organs, called organoids, contain real human cells or tissue and may be used to study diseases and improve drug development. Scientists hope that by merging fields such as neuroscience, biology, and artificial intelligence, they can create intelligent organoids with the ability to learn tasks and make decisions like humans. Researchers say that “organoid intelligence” has the potential to revolutionise artificial intelligence and aid in the development of new treatments for a wide range of diseases.
