For those who know me they know I am a bit Data/Information crazy. As I write on my personal blog I am amazed that most of the worlds endeavors, problems and solutions really come down to 1′s and 0′s. In a basic sense I believe we can solve a great majority of problems and challenges with better and more effective data and information and at its core those 1′s and 0′s. Here is an amazing story that came out recently.
You can read the entire article here. What’s amazing to think about is that might not be blatantly obvious to everyone is the impact this could have on not only our current use of data appliances like data networks, storage, but also entire operations. Think about the fact that Google has an entire data center in The Dalles and states on their site: “The computers inside run some of Google’s services like the Google search engine, Gmail, and Google Maps. Even your own Google searches may be processed there”. Another thing is the fact that data centers require an enormous amount of power to keep running (coolers, electricity, etc) and the potential cost savings in the future could drop like a rock.
I know now they are saying that the process to encode data in DNA is still costly but that the costs are dropping extremely fast due to innovation and technology.
What do you think? Cool eh?
