2024 US-UK Scientific Forum on science in the age of AI

Every year, the Royal Society and the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) jointly convene the US-UK Scientific Forum to help the scientific leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States forge an enduring and productive partnership on pressing topics of worldwide scientific concern.

The 2024 Forum will take place 11-12 June and is focusing on Science in the age of AI. Rapid advancements in the field of AI pose both opportunities and challenges to scientific research. The Forum will explore the emergence of AI in support of scientific research; applications of AI in different scientific fields; new paradigms of doing science enabled by AI; the intersection of AI with open science and the issues of reproducibility and replicability; and ethical issues related to the use of AI in science.

Participation in the Forum is by invitation only, but the proceedings will be livestreamed on this page and available to watch again afterwards.

The agenda for the Forum and the livestream links will be available shortly.
