As part of our ongoing focus on the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), we are launching the third topic in this series: quality education. Posts on this topic will be featured on our website throughout March.
AIhub launched in 2020 and during our first year we’ve published some great content from the community, on a wide variety of topics. We’ve put together a short video that summarises what we do. You can also find out how we can help you to communicate your research to a wider audience.
The Bulgarian government has adopted a “Concept for the Development of Artificial Intelligence“, planned until 2030. This strategy is in line with the documents of the European Commission, considering AI as one of the main drivers of digital transformation in Europe and a significant factor in ensuring the competitiveness of the European economy and high quality of life.
In December 2020, the Royal Society published a report on Digital Technology and the Planet: Harnessing computing to achieve net zero. In his foreword, Professor Andy Hopper, Vice President of the Royal Society and Professor of Computer Technology, University of Cambridge writes: “Nearly a third of the 50% carbon emissions reductions the UK needs to make by 2030 could be achieved through existing digital technology.”
Scientists at the University of California, Irvine have developed a new deep-learning framework that predicts gene regulation at the single-cell level. In a study published recently in Science Advances, UCI researchers describe how their deep-learning technique can also be successfully used to observe gene regulation at the cellular level. Until now, that process had been limited to tissue-level analysis.
We are launching the third topic in our focus series on the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). In March we will start publishing posts relating the goal of “quality education”, which is SDG number four on the UN list.
In December, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung hosted a virtual briefing featuring researchers from Climate Change AI (CCAI). They talked about the role machine learning can play in facilitating climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, AI applications that increase emissions, and energy use in AI itself.
As part of our ongoing focus on the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), we are launching the second topic in this series: climate action. Posts on this topic will be featured on our website throughout February.
