About the project

*NanoAI will develop new frameworks of interpretable and analyzable artificial intelligence (AI) designed specifically for microscopy and nanoscopy so that microscopes and nanoscopes can be transformed from a visualization device to a powerful knowledge discovery tool. Within the *NanoAI project duration, AI solutions for both tissues and living cells will be developed and tested on cardiac tissues and living cardiac cells as a proof-of-concept.

The project started October 2021 under the leadership of Assoc. Prof. Dilip K. Prasad (Department of Computer Science, UiT), together with partnership of Prof. Balpreet Singh Ahluwalia and Assoc. Krishna Agarwal from the Nanoscopy group (Department of Physics and Technology) and Assoc. Prof. Åsa Birna Birgisdottir (Department of clinical medicine, UiT).
