Have you heard about the Internet of Things (IoT)? Did you know it's helping people with dementia receive better care right here in Surrey?  Meanwhile in the world of quantum physics we'll hear about how quantum mechanics has crashed into systems biology to create something called quantum biology. Join us to hear more. 

Memory in Quantum Biology

Could Robin’s see magnetic fields with quantum vision? Can salmon navigate with quantum smell? Do algae use quantum photosynthesis to collect energy?

These are all questions of quantum biology, a field which sits at the centre of quantum physics and systems biology and could provide answers to some of science’s big questions.

We’ll look into the dynamics of quantum systems, and investigate whether their ability to hold onto information, their memory, might be the quantum solution to a biological problem.

The TIHM Project - Improving Dementia Care in Surrey

Dr Shirin Enshaeifar (https://www.surrey.ac.uk/ics/people/shirin_enshaeifar/)
This talk will focus on a pioneering dementia care using the Internet of Things (IoT). The project called, Technology Integrated Health Management (TIHM) is one of only two NHS IoT testbeds operating in England, and is to improving the lives of people with dementia by supporting them to stay safe and well in their own homes for longer, to reduce hospital and care home admissions, and to relieve the stress on carers. We will discuss the design principles and the lessons that we have learned by co-designing this system with patients, their careers, clinicians, and also our industry partners.
