IQC Seminar - Jong-Souk Yeo, Yonsei University
Biomimetic or nature-Inspired technologies are referring to the emerging fields where innovations are strongly inspired by the wisdom from nature or biological systems. Multiple levels of approaches are feasible from nature-inspiration – adaptation of how nature works, adoption of what nature provides, or replication of natural processes and functionalities for eco-friendly, sustainable, and highly efficient technologies. In this talk, nature-inspired approaches will be introduced for the nano-bio and nano-IT convergence research in the areas of nanostructure-cell interactions , nano-bio sensorics , biomimetic optical nanostructures , stretchable electronics , quantum plasmonics , and neuromorphic semiconductor technologies. Along with the research, recent efforts at Yonsei University will be introduced about the School of Integrated Technology where research and education are organically integrated for the technology convergence, and Yonsei Science Park where innovation ecosystem is established for IT-Bio Cluster Hub hosting Global Bio Campus and IBM quantum computer. This research was supported by the MSIT (Ministry of Science and ICT), Korea, under the ICT Consilience Creative program (IITP-2019-2017-0-01015) supervised by the IITP (Institute for Information & communications Technology Planning & Evaluation), the Ministry of trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) and Korea Institute for Advancement of Technology (KIAT) through the International Cooperative R&D program (Project No. P0019630) and by the Human Frontier Science Program (RGP0047/2019).
