The annual Biology Week debate, held at the The Royal Institution, London. In partnership with the Biochemical Society, the British Pharmacological Society and the Royal Institution. A panel of experts comes together to discuss how AI can help us develop solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues, and the opportunities and challenges that comes with using AI technology in the biosciences. *** Welcome to the YouTube Channel for the Royal Society of Biology! Who are we? The Royal Society of Biology is a membership organisation for biologists and bioscience enthusiasts the world over. We are a single unified voice for biology – we advise Government and influencing policy, we advance education and professional development, we support our members in their careers and their development, and engage and encourage public interest in the life sciences. The Society represents a diverse membership of individuals, learned societies and other organisations. Find out more!

Google Workshop on Quantum Biology D-Wave: Natural Quantum Computation Presented by Geordie Rose October 22, 2010 ABSTRACT Description and philosophy of the D-Wave superconducting processor and quantum annealing algorithms. About the speaker: Geordie Rose is a founder and CTO of D-Wave. He is known as a leading advocate for quantum computing and physics-based processor design, and has been invited to speak on these topics in venues ranging from the 2003 TED Conference to Supercomputing 2008. His innovative and ambitious approach to building quantum computing technology has received coverage in MIT Technology Review magazine, The Economist, New Scientist, Scientific American and Science magazines, and one of his business strategies was profiled in a Harvard Business School case study. He has received several awards and accolades for his work with D-Wave, including being short-listed for a 2005 World Technology Award. Dr. Rose holds a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of British Columbia, specializing in quantum effects in materials. While at McMaster University, he graduated first in his class with a BEng in Engineering Physics, specializing in semiconductor engineering.
Murray Shanahan is Professor of Cognitive Robotics at Imperial College London and a Senior Research Scientist at DeepMind. He graduated from Imperial with a First in computer science in 1984, and obtained his PhD in computer science from Cambridge University (King’s College) in 1988. Since then he has carried out work in artificial intelligence, robotics, and cognitive science. He was a postdoc in the Department of Computing at Imperial College from 1987 to 1991, an EPSRC advanced research fellow in the same department from 1991 to 1995, and a senior research fellow in the Computer Science Department at Queen Mary & Westfield College (London) from 1995 to 1998. He went on to be Lecturer, then Senior Lecturer, then Reader in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering back at Imperial, re-joining Imperial’s Dept. of Computing as Reader in 2005. He was awarded his professorship there in 2006. In 2017 he joined DeepMind, retaining his professorship at Imperial College on a part-time basis. His publications span artificial intelligence, robotics, logic, dynamical systems, computational neuroscience, and philosophy of mind. His work up to 2000 was in the tradition of classical, symbolic AI. He then turned his attention to the brain and its embodiment. His current interests include neurodynamics, consciousness, machine learning, and the impacts of artificial intelligence. His book ”Embodiment and the Inner Life” (Oxford University Press, 2010) was a significant influence on the film Ex Machina for which he was a scientific advisor. His book ”The Technological Singularity” was published by MIT Press [More]
