With rapidly increasing advances that extend across science, researchers are applying artificial intelligence (AI), often in the form of neural networks, to tackle big challenges. Mirroring how our brains function, the outputs of these neural networks are based on computations that currently cannot be fully explained. How does this align with the scientific method? Can ‘AI neuroscience’ unlock this black box? Will AI itself become a scientist?

Hiroaki Kitano, Director of Sony Science Laboratories, has a grand challenge for science: “To develop an AI system that can make major scientific discoveries in biomedical sciences that is worthy of a Nobel Prize and far beyond.”

Join our expert panel as they explore these issues. Attendees will be introduced to the basic tenets of AI, and hear about practical examples of the technology in research, as well as the ethical implications all this brings. Tune into our webinar, “ Scientific Research in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” on Thursday 24 May at 4pm BST (11am EDT).

Thought leaders speaking on the webinar:

Jeffrey Ng is Chief Scientist at Founders Factory

Doug Raymond: Doug is the General Manager for Semantic Scholar, Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence

Anita Schjøll Brede is CEO and co-founder of Iris AI

Roman Gurinovich is a CEO at Xpansa and a Systems Architect at sci.AI.

From Digital Science, Steve Scott will be moderating the panel and Cameron Shepherd will be hosting the webinar.
