AI and associated methodologies have had a lot of coverage in the press recently however, bringing these amazing technologies and advances into the scientific domain has proven to contain significant challenges.

In this talk, Mark will discuss some of the details of how we address these opportunities at the Rosalind Franklin Institute.

About the speaker

Dr Mark Basham is Science Director for Artificial Intelligence and Informatics at the Rosalind Franklin Institute, and a Research Fellow at Diamond Light Source, both located on the RAL campus in South Oxfordshire.

Mark was awarded his Physics PhD in surface science simulation from the University of Reading; he then moved to data acquisition and analysis of synchrotron and other experimental data after working with colleagues in the field.

He now runs the Artificial Intelligence and Informatics theme at the Rosalind Franklin Institute, a new Institute funded by EPSRC dedicated to transforming life science through interdisciplinary research and technology development.
