    Updates from a previous JGI Seed Corn funded project:  Addressing the fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) ‘data gap’

    We are delighted to announce a few updates regarding one of our previous seed corn funded projects. In 2022-2023, the JGI funded Cheryl McQuire’s (Bristol Medical School) project on “Addressing the fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) ‘data gap’: ascertaining the feasibility of establishing the first UK National linked database for FASD”. This project allowed Cheryl’s…

  • Are you a researcher looking for data scientist support?

    Researchers across the University benefit from our JGI Seedcorn Funding. Funding is great when you have someone to do the work – but what if you don’t have the right data science expertise in house? For that, this summer we are trialling a new JGI Data Scientist Support service. This provides an alternative support mechanism…

  • Turing Fellowships 2024 announcement

    The Jean Golding Institute is pleased to announce the next University of Bristol-based researchers that have been awarded The Alan Turing Institute Fellowship. Starting on the 1st of March, two new Bristol-based researchers will be joining the Turing network and becoming Turing fellows alongside forty-nine other fellows being announced today. Turing fellows are researchers with…

    Assessing the pathogenic potential of novel bacterial lineages: Towards an early warning system for problem pathogens

    The future of disease control relies heavily on understanding the evolution and emergence of bacterial strains in real time, a daunting yet crucial task. Read our latest JGI Seed Corn Funding Project Blog by Sion Bayliss and Daniel Lawson.

  • Developing an Integrated and Intelligent Algo-trading System

    Traditional algo-trading strategies have become central features of modern financial markets. However, these strategies often rely solely on the analysis of present and past quantitative data, neglecting the importance of incorporating qualitative data in the decision-making process.

  • Seeking ground truth in data: prevalence of pain and its impacts on well-being and workplace productivity

    Chronic pain is a major health issue across the globe. Researchers estimated that at least 10% of the population in the United Kingdom are suffering from pain conditions. If we consider the entire world, some estimated that over 20% of the population have chronic pain and that results in more than 20 million ‘pain days’…

  • Large-sample evaluation of deep learning and optical flow algorithms in nowcasting radar rainfall-flooding events

    Large-sample evaluation of deep learning and optical flow algorithms in nowcasting radar rainfall-flooding events

    This seed corn project aimed to identify a large sample of rainfall events that result in flooding in Great Britain and to evaluate deep learning and optical flow algorithms for radar rainfall nowcasting at the event and catchment scales.
