Stars, Cells, and God | Human Brain Tissue Controls Robot | News of the Day

Join Fazale “Fuz” Rana in this breaking News of the Day episode of Stars, Cells, and God. Fuz reports on the work by a research team from Tianjin University in China, who, recently stole headlines when they announced that they developed a chip that used human brain tissue to control a robotics system. This remarkable breakthrough (called organoid intelligence) generates excitement and also raises some profound ethical and theological questions. In this episode Fuz explains: How this technology works Why researchers are pursuing the development of biocomputing and organoid intelligence Ethical concerns associated with this work Christian perspective on organoid intelligence Links & Resources: Lab-Grown Human Brain Tissue Used to Control Robot Organoid Intelligence (OI): The New Frontier in Biocomputing and Intelligence-in-a Dish A Christian Perspective on Living Electrodes Brain Organoids Cultivate the Case for Human Exceptionalism
