Different definitions for biointelligent manufacturing are discussed within the community. They all share the vision that biointelligence is generated by the convergence of biology, technology and information technology.
ManuFUTURE sub-plaform aims at elaborating a viable, widely agreed definition for biointelligent manufacturing and identifying its components by:
- specifying the differentiation to bioeconomy, biotechnology (red, green, white, blue…), biologicalisation of industry, biological transformation, bio-digital conversion, …
- highlighting examples and best practices of products and production
- describing manufacturing paradigms “bio” / “artificial” including bio principles and bio-inspiration (e.g. neuromorphic computers, deep learning, etc.)
