Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a fairly new and powerful tool that touches all aspects of our lives, and science is no different. But what is AI anyway, and how can we use it? How can it help us to discover the next drug, or the next high-tech material to solve our energy problems? And, once we know what we should make, can AI help us to make it? Prof. Olaf Wiest, director of C-CAS, will discuss the basics of AI and show some recent applications in these areas.
