On February 11-12, 2015, DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office (BTO) held a symposium in the San Francisco Bay Area that brought together leading-edge scientists and technologists from start-ups, established companies and academia to look at how advances in engineering and information sciences are driving biology into a new era—one in which biology is technology.
From programmable microbes to human-machine symbiosis, biological technologies are expanding society’s definition of technology and redefining how we interact with and use biology. DARPA sees in this new era enormous opportunities for taking radically new approaches to developing solutions to long-intractable problems.
The two-day gathering featured a diverse roster of speakers that included DARPA leadership and program managers, DARPA-funded researchers, and other thought leaders. DARPA captured video of these sessions:
