The Intelligent Car
Modern vehicles are equipped with thousands of sensors, enabling them to model their drivers and environment. This talk will give an overview of how machine learning and data science can help to minimise driver distractions, enhance safety, and deliver a personalised driving experience. Nathan Griffiths is a Computer Scientist at the University of Warwick and a Royal Society Industry Fellow working with Jaguar Land Rover.
This talk will be given by Dr Nathan Griffiths, who is an Industry Fellow at the University of Warwick.
Understanding the decision making processes of cancer using hybrid models
Whilst cancer is extremely common on the population level, it is extremely unlikely for an individual cell to become cancerous. This rarity poses a problem for modelling and understanding the progression of the disease. I will talk about how my group uses discrete and hybrid models, more commonly used in software development than in biology, to address this problem.
This talk will be given by Dr Benjamin Hall, who is a University Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge.
Atoms and photons talking: a path to quantum technologies
Josh Nunn is a University Research Fellow at the University of Oxford working on quantum memories, microwave-to-optical conversion, quantum energy transport and quantum random number generation. Governments, including the UK, have recently invested heavily in quantum technologies. His talk will explain why quantum technologies are so exciting, and will describe how his research on quantum light-matter interactions fits into the quantum tech. landscape.
This talk will be given by Dr Josh Nunn, who is a University Research Fellow at the University of Oxford.
Biological clocks in single cells
Throughout evolution, life on earth has negotiated natural day/night cycles. Biological rhythms evolved to anticipate this environmental rhythm; examples include our own sleep/wake cycle. Biological clocks exist in animals, plants, fungi, and even some bacteria. My lab investigates the genetic and metabolic networks that underlie cellular clocks. In this talk, I will share some intriguing results that challenge the existing paradigms explaining our body rhythms.
This talk will be given by Dr Gerben van Ooijen, who is a University Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh.
