AI for Physics and Physics for AI
Speaker: Dr Jorge Bravo Abad, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain
The unprecedented advance of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques that we are currently witnessing is dramatically changing the way we interact with technology. Education, healthcare, manufacturing, or transportation are well-known areas in which AI is having a tremendous impact. A more silent revolution is taking place with the application of AI to scientific research.
Professor Jorge Bravo-Abad, a pioneer of AI in Spain, will introduce us to the main ideas underlying the application of AI to advancing research in Physics. He will provide an overview on how AI can help solving several fundamental and applied problems in this area that otherwise would be very difficult, if not right away impossible, to tackle.
Professor Bravo-Abad will also tell us about why the connection between AI and Physics is not a one-way road: AI can indeed contribute to the advance of physics research, but, reciprocally, physics insights can lead to even more powerful AI algorithms.
