Bioengineers create functioning brainlike tissue
Your daughter is right. Back to the tissue.

The thing is that several critical problems would have to be solved first.
1.Input/output interface

Brain in a vat is useless as computer if you can't provide it with data to process and way to express the results.
And if you biocomputer dies in few months it can hardly be cost-effective.

The input/output is in my opinion a much bigger problem. You would have to prevent scar tissue from forming around electrodes which is currently a major issue with all MMI in real life. Also the interface would need a way to translate analog input into digital output. Finally programing biocomputer is easier said than done.
