Innovation by evolution: bringing new chemistry to life

May 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Imperial College London London, SW7 2AZ United Kingdom + Google Map

Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) Highlight Seminar by Professor Frances Arnold (Caltech), Professor of Chemical Engineering, Bioenginnering and Biochemistry Click here to register. Abstract Not satisfied with nature’s vast enzyme repertoire, we want to create new ones and expand the space of genetically encoded enzyme functions. I will describe how we can use the most powerful biological design process and evolution, to optimize existing enzymes and invent new ones, thereby circumventing our profound ignorance of how sequence encodes function. By mimicking nature’s evolutionary tricks and using a little chemical intuition, we can generate whole new enzyme families that catalyze…

DSI Privacy Debate – Do we still need privacy in the age of AI?

May 3 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Imperial College London London, SW7 2AZ United Kingdom + Google Map

Everyone of us is leaving more data behind than ever before: places we're going to, websites we visit, payments we make, and drugs we buy. On the one hand, the collection and storage of this data raises privacy concerns throughout the world, with some claiming that it poses serious threats to our basic human rights as individuals and as a society. On the other hand, this data has fuelled the fantastic advances we have seen in AI in the past 5 years, carrying significant potential benefits for our health, our security, and the progress of science. Is privacy a legacy of the past or something we need today more than ever? Is the GDPR an obstacle to European research in AI or a necessary enforcer of trust for the sustainable development of AI? Do the benefits of AI outweigh the privacy risks or does a third way exist?
