The scientists who are creating a bio-internet of things

MIT Technology Review  November 1, 2019 Bacteria are a potential substrate for Internet of Bio-Nano Things (IoBNT), which involve networking and communication through nanoscale and biological entities. Researchers in the UK outline significant features of bacteria that allow analogies between them and traditional computerized IoT device to be made. They argue that such comparisons are critical in terms of helping researchers to explore human-bacteria interaction in the context of IoT and HCI. Furthermore, the current lack of tangible infrastructure for researchers in IoT and HCI to access and experiment with bacteria. As a potential solution, they propose to utilize the […]
