Kx is thrilled that the Earlham Institute in England will be using Kx technology for a bioinformatics project that will help to promote a sustainable bioeconomy.

Ji Zhou, Phenomics Project Leader at Earlham, is planning to develop and embed the latest machine-learning algorithms, including deep learning techniques, in Kx’s platform.
