Dear All,


We hope that you will be able to join us on the 1st of December 2022 at 16h30 for the first Kavli Award Lecture that will be given by Demis Hassabis, CEO, and co-founder of Google DeepMind.


Demis will be giving a lecture entitled "Using AI to Accelerate Scientific Discovery"


The Abstract of the lecture is as follows.


The past decade has seen incredible advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). DeepMind has been in the vanguard of many of these big breakthroughs, pioneering the development of self-learning systems like AlphaGo, the first program to beat the world champion at the complex game of Go. Games have proven to be a great training ground for developing and testing AI algorithms, but the aim at DeepMind has always been to build general learning systems ultimately capable of solving important problems in the real world. I believe we are on the cusp of an exciting new era in science with AI poised to be a powerful tool for accelerating scientific discovery itself. We recently demonstrated this potential with our AlphaFold system, a solution to the 50-year grand challenge of protein structure prediction, culminating in the release of the most accurate and complete picture of the human proteome.


A drinks reception will follow the lecture.


This internal event is for Oxford staff only


For the in-person event, booking via Eventbrite is essential as seats are limited to 190.


A zoom link will also be shared next week for our members who would like to join online instead.


We look forward to seeing you.
