Organic Intelligence (OI) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are two categories of intelligence that have grown in importance in the quick-paced world of technology. To understand how these two types of intelligence function in our changing world, it is crucial to recognize their key differences.

What is Organoid Intelligence?

The idea and potential of OI is actively being fleshed out by researchers at Johns Hopkins University.  Those involved describe OI as an, “…emerging multidisciplinary field working to develop biological computing using 3D cultures of human brain cells (brain organoids) and brain-machine interface technologies,”

Essentially, OI is a potential hybrid technology which will combine future biological computers with a brain-to-machine interface, allowing for directed tasks and learning to occur through use of external sensors/stimuli.

Organoid intelligence: a new biocomputing frontier

It should be noted that, realistically, advanced OI may be decades away.  Although advanced OI may take some time to get here, the concept is one that has been developed over decades of research having already taken place involving lab-grown tissues.

Why Develop Organoid Intelligence?

The reason for developing OI is a simple one – we must move forward.  Biological computing and silicon-based computing each have their own respective strengths and limitations.  For example, the human brain is amazingly efficient when tasked with using logic, and completing complex decisions.  Meanwhile, silicon-based computing thrives when tasked with calculations.
