The Artificial Intelligence Laboratory for Bioscience (AI4b.io) is a collaboration between DSM and Delft University of Technology. AI4b.io is aiming at long-term innovation in the fields of Artificial and Bioscience to develop biobased products and to optimize biobased production technologies.
The mission of the collaboration is to develop a deep understanding of how novel AI technology (methods, techniques, theories, and algorithms) can strengthen the effectiveness and efficiency of relevant research and/or business processes in the biotech industry.
For five years, five PhD researchers will work in the lab. Research topics will include, among other things, Digital twin and smart plant scheduling, Digital twin for large-scale fermentation, Digital twin of lab automation processes and self-learning platforms and Machine learning for iterative metabolic engineering.
The AI4B.io Lab collaborates with Planet B.io, the open-innovation ecosystem at the Biotech Campus Delft – for instance, by providing research insights and consultancy to biotechnology startups on the campus.
