Scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw proved that a chemical computer is not a dream of futurologists. They built a pioneer device of this kind; currently one of the best in the world, where chemical signals replaced electronic ones.
To process information in a similar way to traditional computing machines, the scientists used a system of contacting drops, in which repetitive chemical reactions take place. This allows – with high accuracy – to recognize, for example, three-dimensional shapes, and classify cancer cells.
Polish scientists with their colleagues from the University of Jena, showed that the 5x5z droplet system classifies cancer cells from the Breast Cancer Wisconsin Dataset with an accuracy of 97%. (Kp).
