Almost a century ago, the novel Brave New World portrayed a future in which technology and medicine are integral parts of our lives. How far have we come? How far will we go? This opinion article discusses our advancement in disease diagnostics, with special focus on the interlinks between genome sequencing and machine learning.
At our recent event, SIUOxford raised the question, ‘can computers replace humans in biological research?’ Three experts from academia and industry discussed computational contributions in fields such as disease diagnosis with big data, in silico drug discovery, organ simulation and biocatalyst discovery.

What is the future of AI? How will machines achieve learning? What is 'practopoiesis' and its new approach to AI development? These are all topics covered at the recent SIUFrankfurt event. Check out the event summary here.
Dr. Bert Sakmann, MD, PhD was a guest speaker at our SIU Katowice event the 'Brain in a nutshell'. Here, we have an exclusive interview with the Nobel Laureate in Medicine and Physiology (1991). He discusses the challenges leading up to his award winning work on cellular ion channels , explains his current research on digital neuroanatomy at the Max Planck Institute and offers his opinion on Artificial Intelligence.
Pneumonia affects hundreds of millions of people a year around the world and early detection of the disease is one of the most important preventative measures to bring the numbers down. CheXNet, a deep learning algorithm developed by scientists in Stanford, is one of the methods we can utilise machine learning for early detection of pneumonia.
As part of our SIU Conference series, the Oxford division hosted three speakers at the ‘Neurotechnology and Applied Neuroscience’ event on 23rd November 2017 at Magdalen College, a primary sponsor of SIUOxford. Our speakers were selected based on their shared experience of utilising some aspect of applied neuroscience for social and/or commercial impact.
On November 20th in Frankfurt the SIU team welcomed Prof Gregory Wheeler and Prof Roberto V. Zicari to our SIUTranslations event to talk about Artificial Intelligence and its human side. Read on to find out what these experts discussed with our audience at this high-impact event.
We restarted our SIUConversations series with the new academic year in Katowice on October 12 and had a fantastic line-up of speakers to tell us about the latest in integration of Artificial Intelligence and robotics into healthcare and medicine. Here is the summary of the thought-provoking evening.
Asking computers about your symptoms and getting diagnosed by them are not things that you might think would only happen in sci-fi movies any more. We are in the midst of much-improved healthcare, in the form of apps and other tools, which use Artificial Intelligence. But how much computer input are we talking about exactly? In this article we bring you the latest in AI technology in healthcare and discuss the implications.
