  • (Re)Engineering Biology: The Emerging Engineering Paradigm in Biomedical Engineering, Systems Biology, and Synthetic Biology

    PostedWednesday, November 25, 2015 AT 9:54 AM

    https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rebio2016

    15 - 16 April 2016 - Center for Philosophy of Science, 817 Cathedral of Learning, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA USA Engineering models, methods, concepts, technologies and engineers themselves are playing an increasingly prominent role in biological investigation. The new engineering inspired fields such as integrative systems biology, biomedical engineering, and synthetic biology appear to have more in common with engineering approaches than with traditional biological ones. Researchers in these fields typically come from engineering and applied mathematical disciplines or are biomedical engineers trained to understand and build with biological materials. The result has given rise to a complex interplay of different conceptual and methodological frameworks, and interdisciplinary interactions, that have yet to be fully explored by philosophers. A fundamental contribution of the engineering paradigm in modern biology is, arguably, the provision of strategies and tools for

    Algorithms are in use all around us, every day. Online shopping. Job applications. Real estate transactions. Search results. Public safety. Social media. Digital photo albums. You name it, there’s probably an algorithm involved with it somehow. But how do algorithms reinforce societal biases? And how can this be addressed?
