Biologically Inspired Design For An Interdisciplinary Education (Jeannette Yen)

This talk highlights the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and education.  Education is becoming increasingly specialized and organized by silos.  Biologically-inspired design (BID) can help bridge these silos.  The Center for Biologically Inspired Design (CBID) at Georgia Tech teaches BID to teams drawn from engineers, designers, mathematicians, computer specialists and at least one biologist. 

Does Our Future Require Us to Go Back to Nature? (Ashok Goel)

Ashok Goel of the Georgia Tech Design & Intelligence Laboratory gave a 20 minute presentation on his personal journey to make an impact on the sustainability crisis by combining his professional interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) with bio-inspired design (BID).  BID is a powerful paradigm for addressing sustainability issues by embedding nature's principles into the design process.  The ultimate goal is a world where all of our designs are in harmony with nature.
