Upcoming events

Seminar: Symposium on Artificial Intelligence for Science, Industry and Society

Time: 12:00 PM Location: Online Location in CERN maps:

Following the success of the inaugural symposium in 2019, we are now organizing the second iteration of the symposium on Artificial Intelligence for Science, Industry, and Society (AISIS).  The event is being organized principally by UNAM, the largest university in Latin America, but will be held fully online due to the current global situation.

The symposium aims to cover a wide variety of topics, from science to industry to society, as per its namesake. As this iteration of the symposium will be online-only, we are changing the format a bit.  In particular, instead of having live talks, we are going to organize pre-recorded talks followed by a live panel discussion amongst experts on a given topic.  We hope that this strategy will better support the participation of people from a variety of time zones, while still retaining the key discussions as live events where everyone can contribute.

A word from the Director-General

Since its foundation in 2001, CERN openlab has been working to help accelerate the development of cutting-edge computing technologies. Such technologies play a vital role in particle physics,
as well as in many other research fields and domains of society, helping scientists to continue pushing back the frontiers of knowledge.

Fabiola Giannoti, CERN Director-General
