Machine Learning Models Help Predict Which Patients Need A&ENews
Machine learning – a field of artificial intelligence that uses statistical techniques to enable computer systems to ‘learn’ from data – can be used to analyse electronic health records and predict the risk of emergency hospital admissions, a new study from The George Institute for Global Health at the University of Oxford has found.
Using Big Data to Reduce the Risk of StrokeNews
People with irregular and abnormally fast heart rates caused by a condition called atrial fibrillation could be at a greater risk of stroke and bleeding because they are not receiving optimal treatment, warn scientists from UCL and The University of Hong Kong (HKU).
What Does a Big-Storage Future Look Like in HPC?Article
Samsung's recent announcement of 30TB drives is part of a wider trend within high-performance computing (HPC) towards big storage. But, as HPC consultant Laurence Horrocks-Barlow writes, these huge storage capacities present unique challenges and opportunities for organizations on a budget.Read more
Care in the Community – How Biofilms Improve Bacterial SurvivalArticle
A single bacterial cell on its own is vulnerable to attack and like many living things they can benefit from safety in numbers. But bacteria take communal living to a whole new level, forming veritable civilizations - the bacterial biofilm.Read more
Artificial Intelligence, Real Solutions: How AI Can Accelerate Drug DiscoveryArticle
The rate at which new drugs are discovered is in decline, and computer-aided drug design has not produced the radical change in the success of candidate drugs the pharma industry anticipated. Artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches are the new hope for revolutionizing the drug discovery process. But are these, as computer-aided drug design was, an over-hyped time bomb waiting to be found out? Or is it truly a revolution on the cusp of realizing its promise?Read more
Antigenic Drift vs Antigenic ShiftArticle
As part of the host-pathogen arms race, viruses are continually evolving to evade the host immune response, be it from previous infection or immunity acquired through vaccination. Here we take a look at the processes of antigenic drift and antigenic shift.Read more
