Professor David Snead is leading the implementation of digital pathology for Coventry and Warwickshire Pathology Services and directs one of the five Government funded centres in the UK pioneering AI and image diagnostics integration. His main research interests lie in extending the capability of digital pathology for routine diagnostic use and the advancement and deployment of computer assisted diagnostic algorithms. In this third highlight from the conference we revisit Professor Snead’s presentation to get a clinical perspective on how deep learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are set to play an increasing role in daily practice.

A major paradigm shift in agricultural production is required to meet the demands of a global world population projected to reach 9.7 billion in 2050. We have to increase crop productivity sustainably while preserving biodiversity, natural resources, and grower income in the context of climate change. To optimize sustainable productivity and profitability on farms, grasslands, and forests, scientists and growers must embrace a holistic, systems-level approach and focus on the complexity within phytobiomes.
