About Last Week: Biophotonics & Artificial Intelligence School

Last week the first School on Biophotonics and Artificial Intelligence took place in Florence!

It was an amazing opportunity for students and young researchers and we are happy to have supported as a partner the first edition of this School. 

We thank the students for their partecipation and in particular our fellow Andrea Barucci for the organization.


About the School

Biophotonics has applications ranging from chemical, biological and microorganism detection to biomedical imaging, generating highly complex information data. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a disruptive technology, with applications that pervade every field of knowledge.

Machine learning, Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning are in fact able not only to find hidden patterns in complex data, but also to inspire new theoretical and experimental interpretations.

The School has the aim of exploring the intersection between these two disciplines, creating a training path for the development of applications of AI in the field of Biophotonic

The school is organized by SchAI, the School on Artificial Intelligence in Health for people Well-Being, SIOF, the Italian community of Optics and Photonics, Italian branch of the European Optical Society and IFAC, the  “Nello Carrara” Institute of Applied Physics, part of the CNR National Research Council. The School is also sponsored by PhotonHub Europe, the Pan-European photonics digital innovation hub and MDPI, the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute.
