Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry
I mentioned the first announcement of a meeting to be held next year.
RSC-BMCS / RSC-CICAG Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry Friday, 15th June 2018 Royal Society of Chemistry at Burlington House, London, UK.
Twitter hashtag - #RSC_AIChem
A number of the speakers have now been confirmed.
Keynote: What I learned about machine learning - revisited Bob Sheridan, Merck
Presentation title to be confirmed Nadine Schneider, Novartis
Scaling de novo design, from single target to disease portfolio Wilhem van Hoorn, Exscientia
Presentation title to be confirmed Marwin Segler, Benevolent AI
Molecular de novo design through deep learning Ola Engkvist, AstraZeneca
I also notice that there are a number of EPSRC funding opportunities
Artificial Intelligence - UKRI CDTs EPSRC is expected to support 10-20 doctoral training positions.
The call is now open for around 15 Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) focused on areas relevant to Artificial Intelligence (AI) across UKRI's remit. This call opens against the background of Professor Dame Wendy Hall and Jérôme Pesenti's review, Growing the artificial intelligence industry in the UK, and the Government's Industrial Strategy White Paper, Building a Britain fit for the Future. This investment in AI skills will be kick-started by support for over 100 studentships that will be funded during 2018/19 via the Research Councils current mechanisms and schemes.
Universities are invited to apply against two priority areas:
Enabling Intelligence, a priority area within Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's (EPSRC) main CDT call
Applications and Implications of Artificial Intelligence (AIAI), a new priority area relevant to all Research Councils.
