i-sense industry workshop with the University of Surrey's 5G Innovations Centre

On 19 January, i-sense members met at the 5G Innovation Centre in the University of Surrey to discuss and share outputs that have been created as part of i-sense EPSRC IRC, the role that 5G technologies play in the ecosystem, and how they intersect with a range of industry needs.

Collaborative research explores why llamas could change the future for HIV diagnostics

Interdisciplinary research from i-sense at UCL, and published in ACS Infectious Diseases, explores the potentially important role llamas and their family (camelids) could play in developing tools to detect early stage HIV. By borrowing expertise from professionals at IBS at Grenoble and QVQ in the Netherlands, the research characterised the relationship between nanobody 59H10 and p24 to pin-point the binding properties important in understanding the molecular process needed for the design of suitable components of diagnostic tests.

Google Flu Trends revisited: Improving influenza modelling from search query logs

The latest research from i-sense's collaboration with Google to develop the Google Flu Trends model and support a more accurate picture of influenza-like illness in the UK.

i-sense teams up with Microsoft to assess the impact of health interventions using internet data

i-sense, UCL, Public Health England (PHE) and Microsoft researchers have proven the effectiveness of LAIV, an England-wide flu vaccination programme, by analysing tweets and Bing search queries.

UCL and i-sense join forces with internet giant Google to track flu outbreaks

UCL and i-sense researchers will work with Google to develop their models for estimating flu, contributing to the earlier global detection of influenza outbreaks.

UCL and i-sense researchers meet Japan's SAW experts
