UKRI: Transforming our world with AI – Upcoming Events

Artificial intelligence is already changing our world and being used in research and innovation. It has been used by scientists in the COVID-19 pandemic, with agriculture, energy, environment, food and business productivity just some of the other sectors where it is being applied.

UKRI‘s review ’Transforming our world with AI’ sets out their view of the opportunities for research and innovation in AI – artificial intelligence – in the UK.

There are two events which plan to build on this : 

UKRI-BBSRC Workshop on Computing in the Biosciences, Wednesday 29 April 


Building upon UKRI-BBSRC’s Review of Data-Intensive Bioscienceand in response to the recommendation on Digital Infrastructure, UKRI-BBSRC will run a workshop on scientific computing for the biosciences to better understand the computing needs of the bioscience community. The workshop will inform our guidance, strategy and promote the exchange of knowledge across the sector. 

If you wish to participate, please complete the registration by 9 April 2021.



Artificial intelligence in the biosciences virtual community building meeting, Wednesday 19 May


The event aims to raise awareness of the potential AI has for the biosciences and to illustrate where it has already made a difference. It will also promote networking between communities and help UKRI-BBSRC understand the opportunities and challenges of AI for the biosciences in particular.
