"A 'Frankenrobot' with a biological brain" - They've built a robot that is controlled using a living brain. Amazing! Link

In our quest for maybe the ultimate goal in Computer Science, strong AI, they've wired a living brain to hardware sensors and . I don't know if this will be the start of the biological supercomputer as there are many ethical issues regarding this, but maybe it'll shed some light on the functioning of our own brain. It may also lead to some interesting discoveries or development in the field of Artificial neural networks. This isn't the first time this has been done though but is possibly the most advanced? Very interesting...

"machines will be capable, within twenty years, of doing any work a man can do"...
Herbert Simon 1965

So... I'd be vary careful about predicting the future within the Computer Science Realm.
