SpacePerez FitPerez, we wonder just as much as you do… who will take care of us while we're cryogenically frozen for years on a spaceship, traveling to a nearby solar system?
Androids! That's who. (Like David from Prometheus [above]).
Good news! We're now a step closer to making that dream a reality!
Intel's Chip research Laboratory has literally begun work on a neurochip.
The neurochip is a computer that would work like how the human brain does.
It would be able to operate on spikes of energy (like how our brains do) instead of on a constant stream of energy and have permeant storage circuits in the form of memristors.
Basically all that means is soon we'll have computers that think in the same way as the human brain.
Which would just be begging to be put into android bodies to watch us as we sleep.
Science! Science! Science!
