Welcome to the KIWI-biolab, a BMBF Future Lab!
The KIWI-biolab – Künstliche Intelligenz für Wissensbasierte Integrierte Biolabore – brings international top scientists in artificial intelligence, machine learning and bioprocess engineering together to explore the opportunities and challenges of automation in biotechnological processes.
Our Future Lab aims to use AI and ML technologies to automatize data analysis on microorganisms and enable computers to plan and optimize experiments without human intervention. The long-term target is to advance towards automatization for a more efficient and sustainable production.
The KIWI-biolab is a 3 years initiative funded with EUR 5 million by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, within the Federal Government’s Strategy for the Internationalization of Education, Science and Research, and the Federal Government’s High-Tech Strategy 2025 frameworks.
