Colloquium by Dr. Pushmeet Kohli, Head for AI for Science, DeepMind, UK
Thursday, 23 June 2022 14:00, Zoom Meeting
Scientific advances over the last several centuries have not only resulted in a greater
understanding of the universe; they’ve raised the standard of living for many people
across the globe. However, there are still massive challenges facing humanity, as
evidenced by climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the difficulties of
modern science is to make sense of the vast amount of information we’ve gathered
about the world - from the Large Hadron Collider to massive genome projects - it’s
impossible for any individual person to parse it all.
In this lecture, I will discuss how AI techniques like machine learning can use
information and data to dramatically improve solutions to challenging scientific
problems, and accelerate fundamental discoveries by deepening the nature of
questions researchers can ask.
