Newswise: Artificial Intelligence (AI) can detect low-glucose levels via ECG without fingerpick test

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can detect low-glucose levels via ECG without fingerpick test

University of Warwick

Tracking sugar in the blood is crucial for both healthy individuals and diabetic patients. Current methods to measure glucose requires needles and repeated fingerpicks over the day. Fingerpicks can often be painful, deterring patient compliance

Newswise: Malaria deaths could be reduced thanks to Warwick engineers

Malaria deaths could be reduced thanks to Warwick engineers

University of Warwick

The resurgence of Malaria in high-risk areas calls for new methods to combat the potentially dangerous situation. A collaboration between researchers at the University of Warwick and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine have found adding a barrier above a bednet can significantly improve the bednet’s performance, reduce the quantity of insecticide while expanding the range of insecticides that can be safely delivered via a bednet.

Artificial Intelligence algorithm can learn the laws of quantum mechanics and speed up drug delivery

University of Warwick

Artificial Intelligence can be used to predict molecular wave functions and the electronic properties of molecules. This innovative AI method developed by a team of researchers at the University of Warwick, the Technical University of Berlin and the University of Luxembourg, could be used to speed-up the design of drug molecules or new materials.
