For many, lockdown has been made bearable by AI driven technologies and their smart algorithms, feeding, connecting and entertaining us.

The two-year project is focused on developing new algorithms to analyse data collected in healthcare clinics. These algorithms will help Spatial Quotient redesign clinic services, in particular, aiming to optimise the complex flows of patients around the healthcare provider. This will significantly reduce patient waiting times, but also improve the working environment and experience of clinic staff.
