Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful tool that can play a crucial role in many different fields of research. Not least, it is being used to speed up tedious processes and allow researchers more time for discovery.
A group led by Bernard Ghanem is successfully applying AI and the process of machine learning to many different areas of research. They have now streamlined the process, making it quick and easy for researchers to train and deploy their own machine-learning models.
“We’ve been interacting with scientists on campus to help them in their overall scientific pipeline. We work with them to automate parts of the pipeline so that they can do more discovery and less of the tedious, repetitive work,” Ghanem explains.
The variety of projects covers everything from analyzing the results of a new COVID-19 diagnostic test, to counting germinated seeds and discovering new archaeological sites.
Bioengineer Magdy Mahfouz has discovered a new way to diagnose Covid-19 and other infections.
