HumBug 2022: Detecting Mosquito Signatures with Machine Learning


Helping the fight against malaria

Mind Foundry co-Hosts HumBug 2022, as part of the ComparE challenge, bringing together the greatest minds to help solve one of the world’s most important problems. The goal of the project is to use low-cost smartphones to detect the characteristic acoustic signatures of mosquito flight tones, helping understand the presence of potential malaria vectors. The goal of the Mosquito sub-challenge at ComparE was to develop algorithms to detect mosquitoes within...

Let's use AI responsibly to discover where to place EV charge points

Between 2006 and 2010, there were 1,096 registered electric vehicles (EVs) in the UK. Since 2010 that number has exploded, and today there are an estimated 400,000 EVs on UK roads, not to mention more than 750,000 plug-in hybrids (PHEVs). With new technology inevitably comes new obstacles and complications and as EV numbers continue to soar, the provision of charging points to keep up with demand across the country is essential. However, recent figures suggest a growing disparity between the...

AI for Rapid Automated Calibration of Quantum Devices

(A version of this piece was originally published in techUK as part of #QuantumWeek2021.)

Why are quantum computing devices powerful?

Quantum computing (QC) devices offer an entirely new way to perform computations, driven by quantum mechanics. If we can make them work at a large enough scale, they could herald new ages in drug discovery or materials design, and they will crack our most secure encryption methods. But what makes these devices so powerful?All classical (normal) computing devices...

Performance that’s measured against the things that count

It’s no longer enough to measure model accuracy. Ethics, explainability and wider performance are key KPIs that must be considered as equal priorities.

AI systems are automating processes across our lives, but this is nothing new. It began in the last century with a handful of applications such as hand-written postcode reading, and spam filtering. When internet advertising and retail grew, companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo used AI-based recommendation engines in core products....

World Mosquito Day: Fighting Malaria with Machine Learning

August 20th is World Mosquito Day. A day to raise awareness about the diseases carried by mosquitoes and highlight the scientific innovations that are emerging to help us reduce the suffering caused by the world’s second most deadly animal. 

Many diseases can be spread through mosquitoes, including zika, dengue and yellow fever. But the one that has caused the most damage upon humankind is malaria. Humans have been dying from this infectious disease in vast numbers for as long as records go...

Approaching Ethical AI Design: an insider’s perspective

I would be surprised to find anyone who works in the tech sector, especially if they’re working with data, who hasn’t seen a significant emphasis on ethical applications of AI, or “doing AI ethically” (even the Pope has got involved!). Conferences, research, blog posts, videos, thought-starters are all - quite rightly - honing in on arguably one of the most important considerations of the 21st century: how do we build AI to the benefit of humankind?To some aspiring to answer this question, this...
