Making AI explainable, manageable and justified in the UK public sector

Mind Foundry recently hosted 'Defining Ambitions: The Future of AI in Public Sector', an invaluable virtual learning exchange for the public sector. Delivered in partnership with GovNewsDirect, the session's objective was to explore the possibilities for AI innovation within public services. It is fair to say that many organisations are only just beginning to use AI and machine learning; although growing, the number of organisations that rely on it as a core part of their operations is still...

Collaborating With Partners to Push Quantum Computing Forward

(This piece was originally published as a guest post for The Quantum Insider)

The focus on quantum computing has been growing steadily over the last decade, thanks to the promise of how this technology could revolutionise our lives. An example of where quantum computing could be particularly groundbreaking is in the pharmaceutical industry, where it has the potential to make R&D drug development processes possible, that are currently impossible, due to the limitations of classical computing....

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...

71% haven't read the UK's Data Strategy. Here's what they missed.

In June 2019, the government launched a call for evidence on the proposed framework of a strategy around data usage in the UK, receiving over 100 responses. At the same time, the government undertook a programme of roundtables, workshops, and webinars, to ascertain the parameters, objectives, and evidence supporting what would become the National Data Strategy. 

The Strategy, released in September 2020, is a substantial and detailed amalgamation of case studies, statistics, and proposals for...
