One of the things that drives us here at Amii is helping achieve the potential that artificial intelligence has to help fuel breakthroughs in new scientific domains.
That’s why we’re excited to announce a research collaboration with New Harvest to explore the applications of AI and machine learning in cellular agriculture.
We’re eager for this partnership to drive forward both AI and the science behind making animal products from cell cultures rather than traditional ranching and animal husbandry. That could have enormous implications for creating a safer, more sustainable food industry.
It’s an exciting way to cap off what has been a very busy year at Amii. Speaking of which, we’re taking some time this month to look back at some of our favourite moments of 2022. So, check out our social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram), where we’ll be sharing “The Best of Amii 2022” until the end of December.
It’s been inspiring to see all the enthusiasm and vibrance in the AI community this year. I’m looking forward to everything that 2023 will bring — especially when we all get together for Upper Bound, May 23 - 26. Can’t wait to see you there!
Until then, I hope everyone has a safe and fantastic holiday season, and we’ll see you in the new year.
See you soon,
