UKRI-BBSRC asks for community input on artificial intelligence in the biosciences

Deadline for responses – 22 September 2021

URKI-BBSRC is now seeking input from the community to further explore the emerging potential of AI in relation to the biosciences and help us understand future requirements and ensure AI can have transformative impact within the biosciences.

The questionnaire will cover the following overarching topics:

  • Current landscape
  • Opportunities and potentials
  • People and talent
  • Infrastructure

Artificial intelligence describes a suite of computational technologies and tools that aim to reproduce or surpass abilities of humans to undertake complex tasks like learning and problem solving, either with or without human intervention. For the purposes of this questionnaire, please consider AI as covering a wide spectrum of technologies with these capabilities that include, but are not limited to, approaches such as machine learning, deep learning, neural networks and other related technologies.
