Helping to Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic with Artificial Intelligence

A group of scientists from the University of Aberdeen, a United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) member institution in the United Kingdom, recently joined forces with Vertebrate Antibodies Ltd and the National Health Service (NHS) Grampian to tackle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Their partnership has resulted in the development of ground-breaking antibody tests combining innovative artificial intelligence (AI) and epitope display technologies.

SDG of the month

August 2022: SDG 8

In too many places, having a job doesn’t guarantee freedom from poverty. Goal 8 of the Sustainable Development Goals promotes development-oriented policies that support decent job creation, entrepreneurship and innovation. By 2030, we will achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value. 

This month we focus on SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth.
