The IAEA, as the global focal point for nuclear cooperation, is backing AI and its enormous potential to help accelerate the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear technologies and aid progress towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The event aims to provide an international, cross-cutting forum to discuss and foster cooperation on artificial intelligence applications, methodologies, tools and enabling infrastructure that have the potential to advance nuclear technology and applications, while taking into account existing mandates and programmatic priorities.
The event aims to bring together junior and senior nuclear and data scientists, together with nuclear and data engineers, earth scientists and experts from nuclear sites, the industry and the medical field, as well as from technical support organizations and international organizations active in the field of artificial intelligence and related domains, including ethics.
The results of the event will be summarized in a report that will serve as a roadmap for possible future collaboration under the aegis of IAEA where artificial intelligence applications, methodologies, tools and enabling infrastructure can have transformative impacts in nuclear science, technology and applications. It is expected that much of the results will be produced during the working group sessions.
