Dependency can lead to complacency. The craving to extract oil is partly derived from its incessant need in our industrial sector. Most of the moving parts involved post industrial revolution need some form of fuel, extracted from oil. The cries of scientists from the 1980s fell on partly deaf ears, when they warned of oil scarcity, but the short-term economic benefit of ‘black gold’ was to decapitate our vision for the long term.
Many years later, the question remains still: what will be the alternate when the world runs out of oil? Fortunately, scientists who foresaw this predicament began to work on solutions that may help steer our direction to a more sustainable, renewable resource. Read More
How frequently has the human race created turning points for itself in recorded history? Agriculture is one of them – technology is another. Your entire digital existence and conundrums rest on the microscopic highways inside an integrated circuit. A capturing graphic, an important email, a memorable video – all is made possible by the inner workings of a tiny, tiny integrated circuit (IC). The School of Science and Engineering at LUMS hosted a a one-day roundtable, “IC Design in Pakistan” on Friday, December 24, 2021, to discuss and reflect on the future of this magnificent invention.

Dr. Hassan talked about quantitative multimodality imaging which forms the current and future paradigm in clinical and translational imaging. He discussed applications of machine learning, deep learning, optimization, and statistics in clinical and translational imaging. This will illuminate a brand-new area of scientific research and scholarship which is so far dormant within the student community in Pakistan despite being an immensely rich field for over five decades. Dr. Hassan, also demonstrated the inevitable need of electrical and computer engineers and applied mathematicians to actively work in this area of research and present opportunities in lab to work on cutting-edge research in (bio-)medical imaging.
