Over the past decade, artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved rapidly, becoming increasingly sophisticated and capable of solving ever more complex problems. AI is deployed in sectors as diverse as manufacturing, transportation, finance, education and healthcare. AI methods are used in data analysis, theoretical modelling and experiment design, helping to accelerate fundamental science and advancing technological innovation. A particular area that benefits from the application of AI is fusion and plasma science discovery. With its ability to solve large and complex problems, AI can aid experiments and scientific discovery through modelling and simulations. These applications of AI are included in a five-year IAEA coordinated research project aimed at accelerating fusion research and development. The results of this workshop will feed into the coordinated research project.
The purpose of the event is to provide a platform for researchers, developers, practitioners, entrepreneurs and policymakers to discuss artificial intelligence applications to accelerate fusion and plasma science; and to identify representative examples and related data to be shared through international collaboration, ideally leading to coordination or joint work within the coordinated research project on the subject.
The event aims to bring together a multi-stakeholder and inter-disciplinary audience of researchers, developers, practitioners, entrepreneurs and policymakers in artificial intelligence, fusion and plasma science, to discuss applications, connect and build collaboration.
