Dendrite Labs – Mahdi Seify
Dendrite Labs offers powerful software solutions enabling an automated data extraction and control of laboratory resources. The principle aim of the project is to use this advanced technology to provide an automated mechanism for laboratory control. This mechanism will be embedded in a Sim City – type laboratory simulation, created in collaboration with gamification experts of UoL’s Management School.The users will be able to interact with the simulation to optimize laboratory metrics to understand and reduce energy use and obtain clear directions on how to reduce the laboratory’s carbon footprint efficiently. Dendrite Labs aims to install the control system in laboratories over the three years of programme duration, to verify and tune the algorithm. It is expected that installing the system in 50 laboratories will reduce CO2 emissions by a minimum of 200 tonnes per annum.
