October 21-25, 2019, Mexico City - UNAM

Welcome to the Symposium on

Artificial Intelligence for Science, Industry and Society

The symposium will take place on 21-25 October 2019 at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de México (UNAM), Mexico City, Mexico. The conference is organized by the Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares, the Coordinacion de la Investigación Cientifica (UNAM), and the CERN Open Lab. The policy aspects will be organised by the OECD.

The recent progress in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has provided new ways to process large data sets. The new techniques are particularly powerful when dealing with unstructured data or data with complex, non-linear relationships, which are hard to model and analyse with traditional, statistical tools. This has triggered a flurry of activities both in industry and science, developing methods to tackle problems which used to be impossible or extremely hard to deal with.

Due to this situation, we are proposing to organise a meeting where the following key elements would be covered:

The meeting is oriented towards scientists and educators as well as industry and policy makers in R&D.
