Science has a new ally in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic: a UK research institute is using artificial intelligence to help the country keep up with its growing numbers of new infections.
The Institute of Medical and Social Research (IMSR) is using a software called TensorFlow to analyse all the data from coronaviruses.
Its use has been endorsed by some of the world’s leading coronaviral experts, including British and US virologists.
“We need to have a system to keep up.
The only way to do that is with a machine learning approach,” Dr Simon Smith, who heads the institute, told the BBC.
“It’s about having the ability to quickly analyse data, to quickly process data.”
The technology was developed at Oxford University, with support from the University of Oxford, Imperial College London and the Wellcome Trust.
Its researchers are using the software to help detect and track coronavirence, and to detect new strains of the virus.
Dr Smith said the use of AI in the lab was a “critical tool” for the future of science.
“There’s always the question about the safety of this technology, and how to best protect it,” he said.
It was developed by Oxford University to identify novel coronavirotic viruses that were emerging in the UK, such as H5N1. “
But it’s also about making sure it’s being used safely.”

The H5NPv2 strain is the one that was detected in this week’s coronavillae.
“The main challenge is to get to the point where we can use this as a rapid and automated way to identify new viruses,” Dr Smith added.
“And to make sure we can do that in a way that’s safe and efficient.”
The new approach was developed as part of an ongoing collaboration between the Institute of Medicine, the UK’s national scientific council, the British Council for Science and the National Institute for Health Research.
Dr David White, the head of the UK-based Centre for Disease Control and Prevention’s UK coronaviolence programme, said it was a major step forward.
“This is a great example of how this technology can help us fight a disease,” he told the programme.
“What we’re seeing now is really important as we work through this pandemic, but the work is not finished yet.”
Dr White added that the technology had the potential to help fight both the new and emerging coronavires.
“Once we get the technology to a point where it’s used in the field, we’re going to see a very rapid and significant increase in the number of coronavviruses that we can identify and get the best possible results from,” he added.
The project was funded by the Medical Research Council, which aims to build up a national, research-led healthcare system.
Dr White said it had been a “huge success” so far.
He said the technology was being used to detect the new strain of H5n1, which is being rapidly isolated in labs. “
One of the things that is really interesting about this is that, despite the fact that we’ve been in the public eye for the past couple of years, it is now a global pandemic and the numbers are getting worse.”
He said the technology was being used to detect the new strain of H5n1, which is being rapidly isolated in labs.
“You’re now getting very high rates of isolation of these new viruses, and there’s no sign that we’re at the point of isolating any of them yet,” he explained.
Dr Smith’s team is working with the National Research Council and the British Medical Research Association (BMRA) to develop an AI-based system that would help the institute identify new coronavibuses. “
Because it means we have this opportunity to use this technology in a very efficient way.”

This would allow the institute to be able to more quickly test the vaccine for the new strains.
