Conversations about the future
- Steen Rasmussen: What is synthetic biology and artificial life?
- Steen Rasmussen: Hvad er syntetisk biologi og kunstigt liv?
Synthetic biology is a technology that can alter the properties of existing living beings as well as create living beings that have not existed before. Artificial life is a science that seeks to understand and expand the limits for living processes. This is done by creating living and life-like processes, without using biochemical materials, e.g. by developing computer processes, robots and protocells that evolves.
Syntetisk biologi er en teknologi, der både kan ændre eksisterende livsformer såvel som lave nye livsformer, der aldrig tidligere har eksisteret. Kunstigt liv er en videnskab, der både forsøger at forstå og udvide grænserne for hvad liv er. Dette gøres ved at skabe levende og liv-lignende processer, uden at anvende biokemiske materialer, f.eks. ved at udvikle computerprocesser, robotter og protoceller, der kan undergå evolution.
