How to use the Flyweight design pattern in C#

January 8, 2020 | 208 views

Design patterns help us solve design problems often encountered in software development and reduce the complexities in our code. The Gang of Four design patterns fall into three categories: creational, structural, and behavioral. The Flyweight design pattern falls in the structural category. The Flyweight pattern helps reduce memory consumption when working with many similar objects at the same time. This article examines how we can work with the Flyweight design pattern in C#. To work with the code examples provided in this article, you should have Visual Studio 2019 installed in your system. If you don’t already have a copy, you can download Visual Studio 2019 here.

The advances of AI in healthcare

Article | August 8, 2022

With the Government investing £250 million into the project, the Lab will consider how to use AI for the benefit of patients – whether this be the deployment of existing AI methods, the development of new technologies or the testing of their safety. Amongst other things, the initiative will aim to deliver earlier diagnoses of cancer. It is estimated that in excess of 50,000 extra patients could see their cancer being detected at an early stage, thus boosting survival rates. More specifically, a study has shown that AI is quicker in identifying brain tumour tissue than a pathologist.This would have a positive knock-on effect in other areas, such as enabling money to be saved (that otherwise would have been spent on further treatment) and reducing the workload of staff (at a time when there is a crisis in NHS workforce numbers).
