How are smart machines changing us and our future? Today, we use machines and artificial intelligence on a daily basis, often without realising it. Algorithms and computer programmes are the base of all digital communication.  

The way humans communicate is very different from the language machines and computers understand. While we gesture and read each other’s emotions, computers have traditionally only been able to understand code and numbers. But today’s developments in AI mean that we can communicate with machines in a similar way to how we talk to the people around us. How does collaborating with AI in everyday life affect us? Will we see machines and AI as an integral part of ourselves rather than just tools? Can smart machines help us get results that we would not have been able to achieve on our own? 

Welcome to Science Today – a recurring afterwork that kick-starts the brain and the weekend with today’s most exciting research and some of Stockholm’s best DJs. Science Today invites PhD students and postdocs from Karolinska Institutet (KI), Chalmers University of Technology, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Stockholm University (SU) to present their research on stage. 

In this eighth edition of Science Today, we enter the Reaktorhallen at KTH and explore the theme of Man and Machine. Reaktorhallen is the original site of Sweden’s first nuclear reactor, the research reactor R1. Today it is used as a creative meeting place. 

Speakers

To be announced shortly.
