AI Scope


We are developing an AI open source microscope 人工智能开源显微镜 together with our collaborators in 中国。The idea is to interface a neuromorphic computing chip (NM500) into our open source robotic microscopes Homescope and the Deltascope which are based on low-cost open-source technology.

The first idea is to train the NM500 to track the spatial ecology of swarming bacteria. We expect the NM500 to learn how swarming life-cycles propagate in a given fluidic ecosystem implementing predefined adaptive landscapes. Another app we have in mind is to train the NM500 to recognise swarming bacteria from soil samples.
