From the farm to the hospital - how fungicide research could help curb a serious global health threat
From the farm to the hospital - how fungicide research could help curb a serious global health threat Novel compounds originally developed at the University of Sussex for use in farming may hold the key to fighting an emerging fungus which has been labelled a serious global health threat. Initial tests indicate that research into substances designed to protect cereal crops from fungal pathogens could be used to tackle the threat of Candida auris - a multidrug resistant fungus that can spread rapidly in hospitals and cause life-threatening infections.

Artificial intelligence is growing up fast: what's next for thinking machines?
Artificial intelligence is growing up fast: what’s next for thinking machines?
Our lives are already enhanced by AI - or at least an AI in its infancy - with technologies using algorithms that help them to learn from our behaviour. As AI grows up and starts to think, not just to learn, we ask how human-like do we want their intelligence to be and what impact will machines have on our jobs?† Perhaps we want to build systems that 'fill the gaps that humans cannot reach', whether it's AI that thinks in non-human ways or AI that doesn't think at all Josť Hernandez-Orallo We are well on the way to a world in which many aspects of our daily lives will depend on AI systems.
