machine learning

The word "algorithm" has probably got more usage over the last few years than it has in its entire history. But what exactly is an algorithm?

Can mathematics help reshape our hospital networks?

Don't like plant-based meat alternatives, but want to spare animals and the environment? There's hope on the horizon, aided by a good helping of maths.

Find out how the BloodCounts! project is using AI to make the best of the millions of full blood counts performed every year.

The BloodCounts! project is gearing up towards one of the largest-scale applications yet of machine learning in medicine and healthcare.

PhD student Daniel Kreuter tells us about his work on the BloodCounts! project, which uses maths to make optimal use of the billions of blood tests performed every year around the globe.

Teo tells us about his work in artificial intelligence, his travels around the world, and how inspiration sometimes strikes in the pub.

Predicting the weather is hard. It requires a lot of physics, a lot of maths, and a huge amount of computing power. Can AI help?

Clouds make the weather, yet their detail isn't taken into account in weather forecasts. Artificial intelligence might be able to help.

Predicting the weather is hard. But with more data and computing power becoming available, artificial intelligence may be able to help.

PhD student Tamara Grossmann tells us about her work on image analysis.

There are several ways in which it can and studies suggest they could be safe and effective.

  • Want facts and want them fast? Our Maths in a minute series explores key mathematical concepts in just a few words.

  • As COP28, the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, kicks off we look at how maths can help understand the climate crisis.

  • How do you create dramatic film out of mathematics? We find out with writer and director Timothy Lanzone.

  • Mathematics plays a central role in understanding how infectious diseases spread. This collection of articles looks at some basic concepts in epidemiology to help you understand this fascinating and important field, and set you up for further study.

  • Find out why the formula we use to work out conditional probabilities is true!
