We are pleased to announce that the department has established a new partnership with the Samsung AI Research Centre at Cambridge (SAIC). The academic leading this collaboration, Dr Hongkai Wen, from the Artificial Intelligence and Data Science research themes, now works jointly at the University of Warwick and SAIC. The collaboration focuses on the area of efficient machine learning and on-device AI, which enables AI functions to be realised on devices themselves, without necessarily being connected to the cloud, offering more responsive, secure and privacy-preserving user experiences. It hoped that the research activities of this partnership will generate breakthroughs that can be integrated into millions of smartphones, televisions and home appliances.
Congratulations to Warwick Chemistry Student Ambassador, Joe Crowther, who won the Unitemps Student Employee Outstanding Performance Award. Our Student Ambassadors play a key role hosting prospective students and their guests at Open Days, providing an insight into the course and life at Warwick, and leading tours of the Department and campus. Joe was nominated by the Chemistry Department Admissions Team for his dedication and commitment, noting positive feedback from visitors, and describing him as a “delight to work with” and “a great asset to the team and the University”. Joe and his Personal Tutor, Dr Gabriele Sosso, attended the awards evening held at Radcliffe Conference Centre on Thursday 20 June.
We are sorry to report that Professor Elmer Rees, from the first cohort of PhD students in Warwick, died on 4th October 2019.
