ETNO's Position PAPer on ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

 

In response to the European Commission's White Paper on Artificial Intelligence - A European approach to excellence and trust, ETNO has submitted its set of recommendations to emphasize the importance of AI in the telecoms sector.
The European telecommunications industry will be a key enabler of the future AI ecosystems. 5G and fibre connectivity will accelerate the digitisation of services and industrial processes, enabling the rapid expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT). The massive amounts of data generated by IoT connections and devices will open up new growth opportunities for data analytics and AI services in Europe.

The team taking part in this European research project are trying to identify molecules that can block the progression of the virus inside the human body. The problem is researchers are having to explore a huge library of around 500 billion molecules. To identify the most promising candidates in the shortest possible time, the scientists have turned to supercomputers. These can process up to 3 million molecules per second.
