VIOS (pronounced vEEOs) means life (Βίος) in Greek; its common English equivalent bio abounds in science as the word denoting everything about life (biology, biomedicine, bioimaging…). Life is central to our mission. With advances in artificial intelligence, computer vision and inverse problems, our mission is to address societal problems by solving key challenges in the life and natural sciences.
