AI for atoms

Co-organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), this webinar will dive into the potential of AI to help accelerate the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science, technology and applications and aid progress towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.


The event will showcase the ways in which AI-based approaches in nuclear science and applications have the potential to advance cancer staging in nuclear medicine and cancer treatment through radiotherapy; optimize remediation of radioactive contamination in agriculture; as well as accelerate progress in nuclear fusion and science research. It will also provide an insight into the AI-associated challenges, including issues of transparency, trust and security, and other ethical concerns.
