This seminar was given on Monday 19 May, 2012 by Professor Randy Ataide of Point Loma Nazarene University.
Since the beginning of time, man has tried to emulate the attributes of nature. Birds helped inspire flight; fish, underwater travel. But with recent boons in technological knowledge and a broader understanding of the natural world around us, the field of biomimicry is about to explode like never before. The focus of our May session will be on the applications of Nature-based innovations, and how they can make our society better.
Point Loma Nazarene University Professor of Entrepreneurship Randy Ataide will be our special guest for the evening. He is the Executive Director of the Fermanian Business and Economic Institute, and has been instrumental in the development of The San Diego Zoo’s biomimicry program. He will speak about some of the past innovations in the field, and the exciting future biomimicry has in a variety of industries.

What animals have you imagined mimicking in your business? What natural processes inspire you? Could they be transferred to Design, Architecture or new Products?
