Invitation to seminar: UiB AI #1 How AI helped solve Protein Folding – and why it matters

The UiB AI Steering Group welcomes you to a seminar on February 24th at 10am in the University Aula.  The seminar lasts until 11:30 and there will be lunch and discussions 11:30-12:00.

This is the first in a series of seminars on artificial intelligence at UiB. The seminars will be a meeting point across departments and fields of research, where different examples on the use of AI in research will be presented.

On February 24th, Inge Jonassen (Department of informatics) and Nathalie Reuter (Department of Chemistry) will speak to us on how AI helped solve Protein Folding – and why it matters.

Since participation is physical and we will order food, we ask all participants to register via the link on the seminar web page. You will find more information about the seminar and registration link here:
