You are pregnant and in need of an important medication, but nobody knows if the medication is safe for the fetus. Should you stop taking the drug? Or close your eyes and hope for the best? A new research venture is going to crack enormous amounts of data from all over Europe to find the answers that women need in these situations.
Antibiotics most commonly work by killing bacteria, for example by destroying their cell wall or by interfering with protein synthesis. Now researchers at UiO are launching a completely new idea: They want to prevent bacteria from sticking to a substrate, before an infection can even occur.
In ten years, computers will be able to propose the most suitable cancer treatment for you. The idea is to simulate how all possible combinations of existing cancer treatments will work on your particular tumour.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing our lives. However, modern AI shows remarkable, unpredictable and mysterious non-human behaviour when replacing human activity, and this is not at all understood. We will try to shed some light on the basic question in the AI debate: do we know what we are doing?
Professor Anders Hansen from the University of Cambridge gives a talk on the mysteries of AI.
