Amii and New Harvest announce research collaboration
Amii and New Harvest are leading a research collaboration focused on applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in cellular agriculture.
This collaboration will result in open and accessible assets to drive the intersectional domains of cellular agriculture and AI forward – with the first public presentation on the work scheduled for Upper Bound on 23-26 May 2023 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The project is supported by Schmidt Futures, a philanthropic initiative founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt.
Currently, there is limited academic literature on the various applications of AI and ML in cellular agriculture. In addition, industrial progress in the field is subject to intense IP protection restricting the opportunity for new startup formation. This creates immense barriers to growth of the field that has the potential to have a massive impact on global sustainable development areas including climate action, zero hunger, clean water and sanitation.
This collaborative project will embrace New Harvest’s mandate to default to open – making assets associated with this collaboration accessible for all to use, reuse, redistribute and build upon in order to maximize impact. This will build roads to new discoveries by co-creating the shared canon of knowledge needed to drive collective progress in the field.
"At Amii, we are proud to collaborate with next generation science visionaries to see the promise of AI realized in new domains and applications," commented Cam Linke, CEO of Amii. "With the vast economic and technical challenges facing the field of cellular agriculture, this collaborative project is a path forward to take tangible steps towards unlocking the potential exponential impact of AI in this field."
"The close collaboration between the experimental community at New Harvest and the world-leading computational research community at Amii is necessary to take advantage of the role that AI and ML can play in accelerating cellular agriculture," added Isha Datar, Executive Director of New Harvest. "The unique model of both organizations is poised to leverage our strengths to rapidly accelerate the opportunity to advance the field with the ultimate goal of seeing real-world applications."
