233 – Bio-Inspired Systems at EPFL

(average: 4.19)

Guest: Darja Dubravcic     Host: Markus Voelter    Shownoter: Kalpana Goel

Last fall I visited EPFL for a programming languages workshop when I saw a poster on bio inspired systems. Darja’s name was on the poster because she coordinates the programme; I sent her an email and asked if she wanted to talk a bit with me about this field while I am at EPFL. Her calendar had some free time, and so we met. In the episode we discuss why it makes sense for system designers to look at biology and nature as an inspiration and then explore lots of examples that are currently being researched at EPFL.
