[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Summer school on ENGINEERING AND EVOLUTION OF BIO-HYBRID SOCIETIES
Graz, Austria, August 29th – 31st, 2017
Summer school on
ENGINEERING AND EVOLUTION OF BIO-HYBRID SOCIETIES
The goal of this summer school is to teach state-of-the-art methods by going beyond bio-inspired systems, which are focused on developing technology, to bio-hybrid systems, where technology resides in symbiosis with living systems. These bio-hybrid systems can make the best use of the properties of both components: biological and technological. For this, both systems and their interactions need to be understood and modelled in a more detailed way than it would be necessary for classical bio-inspired systems. During this summer school, examples will come from hybrid systems involving robots and bees, fish and plants. The school will consist of four main parts: preparation, lectures, practicals, and a reporting for students who would like to submit the result of their practical work for evaluation.
