Stacey Jeffery wins ERC Starting Grant for quantum algorithms on quantum computers with limited memories
Stacey Jeffery, senior researcher at CWI’s Algorithms and Complexity Group and QuSoft in Amsterdam, is awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 million euro for research on Algorithms, Security and Complexity for Quantum Computers (ASC-Q). The grant helps ambitious younger researchers launch their own projects, form their teams and pursue their best ideas.
New data-sharing collaborations will use AI to help treat severely ill patients. Intensive care providers in the Netherlands have launched a new collaboration to improve the treatment of critically ill patients. The collaboration is an initiative of Diederik Gommers of the NVIC (Dutch Association for Intensive Care) and is led by Dr Paul Elbers, an intensivist at Amsterdam UMC and founder of Amsterdam Medical Data Science.
Depending on how exactly they are made, AI algorithms can inadvertently discriminate or perpetuate stereotypes. In a new study, researchers from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) describe a way to find out which stereotypes are ingrained in AI language models. They also show that those stereotypes can shift quickly if you feed the AI new data.
