Press/Media: Expert comment

Description

Currently, a single supercomputer consumes as much energy as thousands of households, said Professor Ross King, a researcher at the University of Manchester who was not involved in the study.

Using biological chips, 'you can get orders of magnitude more into a small space,' he told New Scientist.

'You could have a desktop-sized supercomputer that used a fraction of the power.'
