A major trial is underway to explore how artificial intelligence can be used to develop more effective treatments for very ill COVID-19 patients. Dr Brijesh Patel , Clinical Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London and Honorary Consultant at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust , is leading a trial to test a new AI device to help monitor the lung physiology of patients with severe COVID-19 pneumonia.
For the first time, a new study simultaneously tracks brain activity, eye movements and body movements of a pro race car driver in extreme conditions. The Imperial College London research team worked with Formula E World Champion Lucas di Grassi to compare how his brain and body reacted to steep curves and straight segments of the Top Gear race track under wet and rainy conditions.
The UK must prepare now for a potential new wave of coronavirus infections this winter, says a new Academy of Medical Sciences report.

Here's a batch of fresh news and announcements from across Imperial. From a study into the risks of smokers developing more severe forms of COVID-19, to a new method for automatically detecting the 'fingerprint' of soundscapes, here is some quick-read news from across the College.
The Solar Orbiter spacecraft has unveiled its first images, including what appear to be ubiquitous miniature solar flares. The 'campfire' flares may solve a longstanding mystery about our star: why its outer atmosphere is hotter than its surface.
Student satisfaction at Imperial is now at 81%, according to the most recent National Student Survey (NSS). The results show that overall satisfaction levels have decreased slightly compared to last year's survey result of 82%.
The amount of energy used for cloud computing, which contributes to climate change, needs to be more transparent says an Imperial researcher. What are data centres and how might they contribute to climate change? - When you run applications on your phone or laptop, the software is using the physical memory and processor inside the device.
Experts at Imperial have outlined their work to develop effective antibody tests to monitor the spread of COVID-19 infections in a new video. Researchers at Imperial College London are working with clinicians at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust on a programme of work to develop a 'gold standard' antibody test to support the Trust's testing programme.
