  2. The prototype of a chemical computer can detect a sphere

    Chemical computers are becoming ever more of a reality - this is being demonstrated by scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. It turns out that after an appropriate teaching procedure even a relatively simple chemical system can perform non-trivial operations. In their most recent computer simulations researchers have shown that correctly programmed chemical matrices of oscillating droplets can recognise the shape of a sphere with g…
