Human Brain Inspires Use of "Electronic Blood" in IBM Computers

Human Brain Inspires Use of "Electronic Blood" in IBM Computers | Biomimicry | Scoop.it

"If you think about it, the human brain is a magical thing. It's capable of computing complicated algorithms on only 20 watts of energy, making it a computationally powerful and compact natural creation that is 10,000 times more dense and efficient than a computer. That natural efficiency has inspired IBM to create a computer fueled on liquid energy, or "electronic blood" that has the ability to carry power in and take heat out — much like the human circulatory system already does."
