AI system could resolve bottlenecks in drug research

Engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a new system that could significantly speed up the discovery of new drugs and reduce the need for costly and time-consuming laboratory tests.

The new technology, called Pattern to Knowledge (P2K), can predict the binding of biosequences in seconds and potentially reduce bottlenecks in drug research.

New system uses AI to find potholes in need of repair

Governments may soon be able to use artificial intelligence (AI) to easily and cheaply detect problems with roads, bridges and buildings.

A new AI software system developed by researchers at Waterloo Engineering automatically analyzes photographs taken by vehicle-mounted cameras to flag potholes, cracks and other defects.

Researchers developing a prick-free glucose monitor

People with diabetes would be able to monitor their blood sugar without drawing blood using a system that is now being developed at the University of Waterloo.

In a recent study, a large research team led by Waterloo Engineering professor George Shaker combined radar and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to detect changes in glucose levels without the need for painful finger pricks several times a day.
