Here, we introduce a CRISPR/Cas9-based core processor that enables different sets of user-defined guide RNA inputs to program a single transcriptional regulator (dCas9-KRAB) to perform a wide range of bitwise computations, from simple Boolean logic gates to arithmetic operations such as the half adder. Furthermore, we built a dual-core CPU combining two orthogonal core processors in a single cell.

Wait .. What ?? ...

In principle, human cells .... could offer enormous computational capacity.

Two recent local stories:

Airport info system clobbered by Malware.

Local church e-mail-scammed (Phished) out of nearly $2 mil

Of course media hollers HACKERS!!!

...IMHO "Hackers" are people that make an effort to break through security systems... firewalls, OS/App holes, etc

Malware and Phishing are in another category... but "Hackers" sounds so much more glamorous.

I can't give s*** to whoever made the change to the bank account info (church), or clicked on that malicious link (airport?)... presuming they've had no prior training/warnings, etc. Ignorance is what the bad actors prey upon.

For several weeks, North Olmsted residents reported their electronic key fob devices and garage door openers had stopped working. Visitors also had issues when they entered the area.

Oops!

Innocent mistake exposes malicious potential.

Social Credit System being implemented in China:




A state controlled version of Nosedive ?
Many critics noted the similarity of the episode to real world app Peeple and China's upcoming Social Credit System,
