The Sparks! Forum was originally planned to take place in 2020, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sparks! Launch took place virtually on 26 November 2020.
Professors Anima Anandkumar, Jürgen Schmidhuber, Francesca Rossi and Stuart Russell, talked about the current status of the field of AI research today, setting the scene for the discussion about the future of the field during the event in 2021. Host Bruno Giussani, Global Curator of TED, interviewed CERN AI experts Jennifer Ngadiuba, Sofia Vallecorsa and Micheal Kagan on how CERN and other big science can benefit from AI and the topics we then adressed during the first edition in 2021.
You can watch the launch here to give you an insight into the world of future intelligence, and to find out more about what attending a Sparks! Public Event might be like.
