Dr Vanessa Diaz and the medical researchers at the DISCIPLUS project want to create a future where every person has a virtual twin: 3D-modelled versions of medical patients that will exist in hospital databases to aid doctors in treating patients. Your virtual twin could be predicting your medical treatments in the future.
Simon Schultz and his research team aim to understand how information is processed by brain circuitry to benefit society in two ways: to understand and treat brain disorders such as Alzheimers and to extracting basic principles of information processing that can be used to build better machines: new parallel computing architectures.
Prof. Eric Yeatman is working on how micro technologies can increase the intelligence of systems in our personal and industrial environments to put intelligence into our future cities.
With smart textiles we can "download new colours or patterns" to our clothes, said Francesca Rosella, Creative Director at CuteCircuit. "By embedding nanotechnology into fabrics, we can create "smart textiles" that are conductive, or even computational. Now through nanotechnology, some fabric can be coated with particles of silver or gold to become a conductive fabric.
Research on swarming robots may lead to the use of tiny nanobots for micro-medicine - swarms of miniature drones that could attack harmful pathogens in the human body with microscopic precision. "We are developing Artificial Intelligence to control robots in a variety of ways," said Roderich Gross, head of the University of Sheffield's Natural Robotics Lab.
QuantuMDx has a working prototype for a device intended to quickly test a sample of blood, sputum or even tumor cells for genetic markers that provide information to guide a doctor's decisions on how to treat a patient. "We want to put a full diagnostic test into the palms of health professionals' hands," said Elaine Warburton.
Bart Remes, project manager at the Micro Aerial Vehicle Laboratory at the TU Delft faculty of Aerospace Engineering, has led a group of researchers to the creation of the world's smallest autopilot. The team's goal is to eventually create MAVs (Micro Aerial Vehicles) small enough to fit into your pocket.
