With AI against Corona

Dear Sir or Madam,

Worldwide, almost thirty million people have already become infected with the coronavirus – nearly one million of them have not survived the infection. According to scientists, the high infectivity is due to the intensive binding of its spike protein to the human host cells. A team from the TU Berlin and the University of Luxembourg is investigating why this is so. To what extent machine learning is supposed to help, you can find out in our News.

Stay healthy!

Elena Blume
Editorial team

PS: This year, MEDICA and COMPAMED will take place completely virtually. How exactly will this look like? Check out the press release for more information!

Laboratories have to analyze and interpret an ever-increasing number of samples for research and diagnostic services, generating lots of data in the process. At the same time, labs are required to produce quality results and operate with speed. Processes that could once be managed using laboratory notebooks and isolated systems must become smart in the future to improve lab efficiency.

Smartlab – Robotics and automation in the laboratory


Image: Preview picture of video
Some tasks in the laboratory are repetitive, need to be done extremely precise and require a lot of time. Such tasks are very tedious for humans, but they are tailor-made for robots. Such is the case with the "AutoCRAT" project at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT in Aachen. Here, a robotic platform is developed to produce stem cells for the treatment of osteoarthritis.
