The 20 page glossy magazine has a variety of quick-reads and in-depth articles about how computer scientists can help patients and doctors in making medical decisions, with a specific focus on the EPSRC-funded Pambayesian project taking place at QMUL (EECS and Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry). Pambayesian is a £2 million project researching home-based / wearable medical decision support systems with real-time monitoring for chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes in pregnancy (gestational diabetes) and atrial fibrillation. The articles are written by Profs Norman Fenton and Paul Curzon (both investigators on the project, Norman is the Principal Investigator) and Jo Brodie (CS4FN admin), with input from others on the project.

This is the 27th issue of CS4FN which began life in 2005 as an outreach and public engagement project (also initially funded by EPSRC), co-founded by EECS' Paul Curzon and Peter McOwan. Since then we estimate that we have posted approximately half a million magazines to UK schools (the print-run for each issue is around 21,000 going to around 2,400 subscribing schools with some having one issue for the library and others having a class set of 30 copies) and we enjoy hearing about how teachers use them to spark classroom discussion on computing topics, or use them alongside the free classroom resources from our sister project, Teaching London Computing.

You can download a free PDF copy of this issue or browse the articles in our accompanying blog. If you're a UK schoolteacher (or know one) who's not yet subscribed please use the purple form here to subscribe and we'll post future issues to your school. All of our back catalogue including CS4FN magazines, puzzle booklets, books on magic and maths, and mini-magazines ('A bit of CS4FN' for primary schools) can be found here:
