Can AI receive a Nobel Prize?

What are the risks, and how is AI an important tool for scientific breakthroughs? How does it affect future research and science? Should AI be able to win a Nobel Prize? Welcome to a conversation at the Nobel Prize Museum, where three researchers discuss the matter from different angles!

Time: Mon 2023-10-02 16.00

Location: Nobelprismuseet, Stortorget 2

Language: Swedish

Participating: Nina Wormbs (KTH), Magnus Boman (KTH/KI) and Åsa Wikforss (SU)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly important, especially in research. In a number of scientific fields, AI is necessary to enable processing of enormous amounts of data. What scientific breakthroughs can AI lead to? Will these developments affect public confidence in research? And how can AI change and influence the role of researchers – should AI even be awarded Nobel Prizes?

In a conversation at the Nobel Prize Museum, researchers will discuss opportunities, challenges and fears as AI assumes an increasingly important role in research.

This conversation is part of Nobel Calling and is being organised in partnership with Stockholm University, KTH, Karolinska Institutet and the Swedish Research Council.

Note that the talk is in Swedish.
