Alan Turing would have one hundred years next 23 June 2012. His 1950 paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” is one of the most cited where the "father of Computer Science" proposed to change the question "Do machines think?" to "Can machines do what we (as thinking entities) can do?". The core elements of such machines are (multi)processors that are (still) known as electronic devices.

Knowing that “scientists are one step closer to making a biological computer after building basic components for digital devices out of bacteria and DNA” ( ref ) , will “artificial intelligence” remain valuable descriptive name when it’ll come to biological computers?

This post is dedicated to Alan Turing as far as the applications of biological computers keep going such as recently where research leader explained “Our biological computing device is based on the 75-year-old design by the English mathematician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist Alan Turing.”

The question is: would it be “ a mistake to envision the kind of computation that we are envisioning for living cells as being a replacement for the kinds of computers that we have now," as said once a researcher at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory?

The initial question was retaken after 3 days as it is by another "researcher" in another gate! What to say?!
